prior to updating to 5.0.1, I could access my site without getting message: Firefox prevented this page from automatically redirecting to another page. There is no option in preferences under the Firefox button that allows me to turn this feature off or enter an exception.

See:

  • 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.
