On going to a new item on say news page a bar opens like in windows and reads Firefox has prevented this page from opening. then farther along the bar there is an allow button. I don't want to have to click each time. Thanks. john

See:

  • Firefox/Tools > Options/Preferences > Advanced > General : Accessibility : [ ] "Warn me when web sites try to redirect or reload the page"

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 or people who use screen readers do not get confused and is not meant as a safety protection to stop redirecting.
