Suddenly getting "Firefox wants to redirect a page" ?


Since Jan 1, when I go to certain sites (local news, for instance) I get a dropdown bar saying "Firefox wants to redirect this page" with an 'allow " button. And I click the allow or the X to stop it and guess what? It does it again. What's going on?
