Every other search I do a Redirect Notice pops up. How do I get rid of this. Have used MS Edge and this browser does not have the problem, I am reluctant to transfer to Edge but will if I can't resolve this issue.

Thought it was sorted but just returned. Still shows Redirect Notice.

Did it return after leaving Troubleshoot Mode? Try disabling your extensions.

Hi zeroknight After disabling extensions (only 2) problem solved but as I cannot replace needed extensions I will probably migrate to MS Edge after a long time using Firefox. Thanks for all the help.

What are the names of the extensions? Maybe there are other extensions that do the same thing better.

Have you tried reporting the problem to the extension developers?

Hi Holard, is this your scenario:

(1) You are following paid results near the top of Google search results, such as shopping ads for products

(2) Rather than go directly to the site, Google displays the external redirection warning -- in other words, there is a disconnect where Google doesn't realize you clicked the ad on the Google results page

(3) You use the Adblock Plus extension

In a recent thread, a user identified Adblock Plus as the culprit, perhaps due to a recent change in one of its features or filters: https://support.mozilla.org/questions/1421355

You can look at how to adjust your Adblock Plus settings/filters for the Google site, or make a site exception. See: https://help.adblockplus.org/hc/en-us/articles/1500002533742-Adblock-Plus-breaks-the-websites-I-visit

Alternately, you can change to uBlock Origin: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/ublock-origin/

Hi jscher2000 Thanks for your comments. I only have addblock for utube and pinned google calendar. Either of these will cause the problem but when both disabled problem resolved. I didnt understand your comment about paid results though.

I'm glad you figured it out. By "paid" I meant the results in the "Sponsored" section. Those seem to run through a googleadservices address which triggers the ad blocker.
