why doesn't the Submit Feedback link work?


I wanted to submit a request that the Redirect warning be more visible, I often find myself waiting for 30 seconds before I realize I need to click

But the feedback link isn't working , in one situation, a working link just loads the broken link page rather than going to the actual target!

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.

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

Question owner

The question was 2 parts, one, why from Firefox Help are you directed to http://input.mozilla.org/en-US/feedback where the button does not work?

and two, how to make the warning MORE VISIBLE because at present it stops the redirect but the warning is so inconspicuous as to be invisible!
