This is so annoying. When I open a new web site there is a band across the top of the page asking me if I want to allow Firefox to open this page. I can still work on the page but I don't like this feature.How can I get rid of this

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

The setting in "Options > 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.
