Using Firefox 66.0.3 I want to disable the blocking of "redirects". I am sick of having to keep clicking the "Allow" button. I want to turn the redirecting off.

On the internet it tells me to check Tools-->Options-->Advanced In Firefox 66.0.3 there is not an "Advanced". The solutions on the internet are old.

How do I turn this off? I guess I want to turn "Warn Me When Websites Try to Redirect or Reload the Page" OFF.

Please tell me (and everyone else) how to do this.

Chosen solution

This feature is OFF by default and because it is not useful to most users, was removed from the Options page quite a while ago.* So:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste access and pause while the list is filtered

(3) If the accessibility.blockautorefresh preference is bolded and "modified" or "user set" to true, double-click it to restore the default value of false

Thank you!!!!

Works like a champ. Everything I found on the internet was just too old and no longer worked.

This worked!
