This pop up has been occurring about once a minute when I am on certain sites.

This web page is being redirected to a new location. Would you like to resend the form data you have typed to the new location?

How do I get it to stop?

I tried to follow the directions listed but when I type in: I get a message saying this page does not exist. Note the directions use rather than (neither works).

Any suggestions? This window popping up all the time makes it almost impossible to use mozilla. This is my work computer and I am also getting another window asking for my name & password; this started after the inital problem began.

For your original problem, see this - Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems

For your Plugins Update URL problem, you are typing the wrong URL. Use these URLs for Updating your plugins:

When Downloading Plugins Update setup files, Remove Checkmark from Downloading other Optional Softwares with your Plugins (e.g. Toolbars, McAfee, Google Chrome, etc.)

Check and tell if its working.

I've disabled all my plugins and this seems to have stopped the problem. I'm enabling them one at a time to see if I can find the culprit and if/when I do I will update.

I had all plugins disabled but am still getting the same window/message. As previously noted this is my office computer and occasionally I'll get my log in window pop up too

I reset all the preferences to Firefox defaults; same problem continues.

I only get this problem when I am connected to my work network. I never get this problem on my home network. Does the use of a proxy trigger this problem? I can't get it to stop and it pops up every few minutes (sometimes seconds) and makes using Firefox impossible.

Hi monkeydoodle,
You're replying to a thread that is 11 months old. You should use where volunteers can get more details about your setup.

Because this thread is so old and more people might start using it for their own questions, I'm going to lock it.
