For some sites that I use daily, Firefox refuses to go to some redirected pages without my intervantion, and won't go to others even when I ask it to, which forces me to use another browser for those sites.

Posted

After I log in to certain sites that I use daily, Firefox will not go to the post-log-in page until I unblock the transition. For other sites, it ignores my repeated attempts to unblock the transition, forcing me to use another browser for those sites.

For the first type of site, I would like a way of telling Firefox to never again waste my time by forcing me to manually unblock the transition.

For the second type of site, I would like to get Firefox to stop ignoring my attempts to allow the transition.
