How do I set up FF to not let sites redirect me away from the page I want to be on. It never use to do this.

Posted

all of the sudden FF started redirecting to me to other pages away from the site I am attempting to be on. It is getting really annoying.

hello pboren01, this sounds like a problem possibly caused by malware on your pc. please go to firefox > addons > extensions & remove any suspicious entries (toolbars, things that you have not installed intentionally, don't know what purpose they serve, etc). also go to the windows control panel / programs and remove all toolbars or potentially unwanted software from there and do a full scan of your system with the security software that you have in place and/or a different tool like the free version of malwarebytes.
