How do you disable firefox's automatic redirect prevention? I know you used to be able to find the option under "advanced options" but in firefox 86 I do not see an "advanced options" section and searching for the option doesn't bring it up. Firefox 86.0 on windows 10.

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 disable this accessibility feature.

  • accessibility.blockautorefresh = false

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can click the button to "Accept the Risk and Continue".
