How do I exempt selected web sites from the automatic blocking of redirecting to other websites ?

I have recently signed up with satellite internet provider Hughes.net. Their home page and all linked hughes web pages set up based on redirecting to other web sites to contribute to content. Just to get the home page set up requires five manual punches of the Firefox redirect 'Allow' button. One of the diagnostic pages will not work due to the blocking pause for the 'Allow' punching.

None of the "See" suggestions above allow selective exemption - - They are all global pause, warn and request allowance or none. I have requested an opinion from the NoRedirect developer as to whether this add on will solve the problem. I'll post the reply from them when received.

It has been 5 days since I asked the developer of the add on 'NoRedirect' for an opinion on using it to solve this problem. There is no answer to date. I have to assume that I'm not important enough to merit a response. Anyone out there that can"shake the tree"? Anyone else with suggestions on solving this?
