There used to be a way to turn off page redirect blocking but I can't seem to find it in the options on the latest release. Can someone tell me how to disable this feature on Firefox 61.

Chosen solution

In Firefox 56+ the "Warn me when websites try to redirect or reload the page" setting can no longer be found in Options/Preferences. You can modify this pref on the about:config page to enable or disable this feature

I was able to go into about:config and change the value for blockautorefresh from true to false and this solved my problem. Thanks for the information.
