Firefox blocks links until I click 'Allow'. How can I always allow all links from a particular trusted site? I use Win 7 on Sony Vaio.


I use Win 7 on Sony Vaio. I have a daily newspaper email received into Outlook and every time I click on a link to go to an article it won't open the page till I click 'Allow' on the ribbon saying that 'Firefox prevented this page from automatically directing to another page.' How can I disable that for this site?
