Chosen solution

Do you mean that Firefox displays a bar requiring you to click Allow for the page to reload or redirect? Here is how you turn that off:

(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 in the page, type or paste accessibility.blockautorefresh and pause while the list is filtered

(3) If the preference has a value of true, double-click it to restore the default value of false
