Firefox prevents pages from automatically reloading even though I click allow.
This is one site: http://psychcentral.com/ There are reference materials at this site. The page will not load the reference links.
This is another: http://fundox.free.fr/

All is well for the moment. Thanks.
I wish that there were a way to allow only certain site to automatically reload. It's annoying to know that now, in order to have the one site I want to be able to reload allowed to do so, I have to allow all sites. But clicking the "allow" doesn't help -- it's a dynamic page for a radio station, and clicking "allow" doesn't even last a second before I get the message again. Going to the Advanced Options tab and allowing it from there is not very satisfactory. I will have to remember to recheck it each time I'm not using that particular site. I hope that an upgrade to firefox might eventually incorporate selective permission, as it does with the pop-ups.
Love firefox! It's still the best browser for me!
I followed The Byzantine's method and no more 'reloading' problems! Thanks.
thanks for the help with the page redirection It did the trick and now I am able to get into my library.
This is really unsatisfactory. I want to be warned if internet sites try to redirect me to another site. However, this feature seems to have suddenly started blocking my internet access via my router, so I have to choose between losing security and enabling my wifi access.
The setting in "Tools > Options > Advanced > General" is meant as an accessibility feature, as you can see by the label of that section, so that people with disabilities do not get confused and is not meant as a safety protection to stop redirecting.
