I have only seen this happen when a url tries to take you to a blocked site. There is a setting however that stops redirects:

  1. Go to the FIrefox preferences from the three bar menu or put this in a new url: about:preferences#advanced
  2. under General there is a setting "Warn me when sites try to redirect or reload the page"
