Note that this warning in an accessibility feature and the setting in Options/Preferences was removed because it wasn't working properly and only worked in a few cases. In case there as multiple redirect then it might not work at all and you might not be able to continue.

You can modify this pref on the about:config page to enable or disable this feature
