Here is the situation. I have the advanced setting checked to warn me when a sit tries to redirect or reload a page, which is supposed to prevent it from happening. However, it isn't working. A page tried to redirect, and I saw the little banner that said Firefox prevented it, then it happened again immediately, with the same banner, and then the page went ahead and redirected, and I did NOT click to allow it. It was as though the page redirect was tried three times, stopped two, then allowed. There has to be some way to stop this entirely. To be clear, I already have it checked under Advanced/General to "Warn me when websites try to redirect or reload the page." It simply isn't stopping the redirect. Yes, I have antivirus protection, and yes, it works. The page that s reloading is a Sims 3 store page. It's supposed to be a video, on the store site, to watch for points. Most re just that, but today some have sown up that, instead of playing a video, it redirects to some other site. One was a health site, with no video to even view! cookies galore, though, which have now been blocked.
Any help appreciated in preventing this from happening in the future!
