To display this page, Firefox must send information that will repeat any action (such as a search or order confirmation) that was performed earlier. Then I must click on Resend or Cancel. Then I must click on Resend or Cancel.

How can I set this automatically resend? please let me know!!

That is not possible.

Do you use the Back button to go to a previous page?

You get an alert about resending POST data if you go back to a page or refresh a page that was previously requested from the server by submitting form data via a (hidden) POST form. Firefox can only make sure to get the same page by resending that POST form. Firefox doesn't know what that form data means, so Firefox asks for confirmation before resending that form data as such an action can cause you to repeat an action and buy another item or post a message another time. A way to prevent this pop-up about resending POST data is not to use the Back button, but to open links on a page requested from a server by sending a form with POST date in a new tab (window) with a middle-click or hold down the Ctrl key and left-click the link. Then you can close that tab or window to go back.
