Re: how to avoid, "firefox prevented this page from automatically redirecting to another page."

See:

  • Firefox/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.

Thank you, cor-el. Too obvious for my limited intellect, I guess.
