why doesn't Firefox automatically allow my home page to open?
Recently Firefox stopped automatically allowing me to access my home page, requiring me to hit the allow button each time I try to log in. Why is this happening, and can I go back to the way it used to work?

Is Firefox saying it stopped the page from redirecting?
(1) You can turn off that feature on the Preferences page:
"3-bar" menu button (or Firefox menu) > Preferences > Advanced
Click the "General" mini-tab on the Advanced panel, then uncheck the box for "Warn me when websites try to redirect or reload the page"
(2) If your home page is redirecting, you may want to update it to the "final" address to save on that extra web request. For example, if your home page was:
it will always tell Firefox to request the following address instead:
So you could save on the extra request by updating your home page to:
(Basically, changing http to https) (That last part after ? just tells Google it redirected you for its internal logging purposes, you don't really need that in your home page setting.)
That's also on the Preference page. See: Startup, home page, tabs, and download settings.
What is your home page?
