How do I get the little messages to show up again in my browser window telling me a website wants to reload or forward my page, do I allow?

As I surf from website to website, up at the top of the browser window (but before the toolbar) a little notice was showing up asking me if I wanted to allow the website to redirect (forward) my page. It would also tell me that a webpage wanted to reload. There was a little "allow" button at the top left and also at the top left there was a little "x". I accidentally clicked that "x" and it hid that little notice thingy. I can't figure out how to get it back. I'm brand new to Firefox so please forgive my ignorance on this. Btw, Firefox is awesome. ;-)

Chosen solution

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

The setting in "Firefox > Preferences > 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.
