In Firefox 55, there was a check box that said "Stop reloads and re-directs". I believe it was under Options, Tools, Advanced. Where is this in Firefox 56 ?

In Firefox 55, there was a check box that essentially said "Stop reloads and re-directs". I believe it was under Options, Tools, Advanced. It worked very well. Where is this in Firefox 56 ? The whole Options layout changed, and I cannot find it.

It must be there somewhere, because, I had it checked on one of my computers before I upgraded to FF56. On that computer, when a site tried to reload or redirect, a grey box appeared across the top of my screen, under the icons, saying that FF stopped a re-direct. When that machine was upgrade to FF56, the check box disappeared, but the grey bar is still active, so there "stop redirects" is still working. But where is the check box now ???

It looks that this setting has been removed from the UI and that you would have to use an extension to handle this (don't know if there exist one that in 57+ compatible).

Note that you can use the search bar on about:preferences page to locate settings that you can't find.

You will have to toggle accessibility.blockautorefresh directly on the about:config page if you want to use this accessibility feature.

Not sure if this will work with Firefox 57
