Some wireless networks force "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?"


Only on certain, usually public wireless networks like some Marriott hotel networks and Southwest Airlines in-flight networks, this message, marked "Confirm" at the top, pops up multiple times for every website. I have to click OK every time, and it vastly slows my browsing speed (in addition to all the clicking). I am running a few add-ons, like AdBlock Plus and Ghostery, but disabling those does not help. Ideas?

Try the Firefox Safe Mode to see how it works there. The Safe Mode is a troubleshooting mode, which disables most add-ons.

(If you're not using it, switch to the Default theme.)

  • You can open the Firefox 4.0+ Safe Mode by holding the Shift key when you use the Firefox desktop or Start menu shortcut.
  • Or use the Help menu item and click on the Restart with Add-ons Disabled... menu item while Firefox is running.

Don't select anything right now, just use "'Start in Safe Mode" To exit the Firefox Safe Mode, just close Firefox and wait a few seconds before using the Firefox shortcut (without the Shift key) to open it again. If it is good in the Firefox Safe Mode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, and you need to figure out which one.

Please follow the Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems article for that.

When you figure out what's causing your issues, please let us know. It might help other users who have the same problem.
