this notification comes up each time I click on a link in an email to open a webpage.

How to I turn off this message?

Chosen solution

In Firefox 56+ the "Warn me when website 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.

  • accessibility.blockautorefresh = false

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.

So this was once a simple option in Firefox and now it's been amended so it's hidden away and hard to change. That's helpful.
