Stopping the "Firefox prevented this site from automatically reloading" banner

more options

I know this is going to push the boundaries on the "stupid question" meter, but I've looked everywhere I know to look. I have a website that I completely trust (inasmuch as one can), and they've recently made some changes to their site that requires the site to reload for an animation. The problem is that FF interrupts with the banner (see image) about reloading and my only l option is the "Allow" or "Dismiss". One requires me to just keep pressing the "Allow" button, while the other stops me from seeing the reload. Is there a way I can stop this?

Thanks in advance, Dan

Thanks for your quick response "milo". The problem there is that the link you provided (while loaded with information) is for FF v.55. I'm running v.87.0 and everything in the menus has changed. There is no box to uncheck regarding a warning when websites try to redirect or reload.
