automatic reload

Browser needs exceptions for preventing automatic reload. It is useful to prevent redirecting to a malicious web site. But the page I regularly visit keeps auto loading and this annoying pop up warning bugs my surfing. People would like to be able to use exceptions for preventing reload in the advanced menu.

The setting in "Tools > Options > Advanced > General" is meant as an accessibility feature, as you can see by the label of that section, so that people with disabilities do not get confused and is not meant as a safety protection to stop redirecting.
So it is all or nothing and that won't change in the future.

I didn't understand this. What does it have to do with disability? There are safe websites that automatically reload the page for some reason. Firefox prevents that. I want to stop Firefox to prevent it. I can do that of course in Tools>Options>Advanced>Warn me when websites etc. But there should be exceptions. I should be able to add safe websites to a list so that Firefox should not prevent automatic reloading in those websites. For harmful sites it should prevent redirecting and automatic reloading.
