Firefox won't automatically reload web page

After installing Firefox 4 I got the following message when on the weatherunderground page: "Firefox prevented this page from automatically reloading". Clicking on the allow button will get rid of the message but it comes right back. I uninstalled Firefox 4 and downloaded Firefox 3.6.16 but I still get the same message. How do I get the page to automatically reload?

Do you know if that then allows the page to automatically reload or does it just get rid of the message? Thank you!

Re: Firefox won't automatically reload web page

It does both. It will automatically redirect you to the correct server and because of that it is no longer necessary to ask permission and you do not get the bar at the top.

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 or people who use screen readers do not get confused and is not meant as a safety protection to stop redirecting.
