when downloading video to Facebook I get message "Firefox is preventing you from reloading this page" and allow button doesn't do any good.

more options

when I try to download a personal video to Facebook I get the message " Firefox prevented this page from automatically reloading". I click the allow button which lets it start downloading but it only stays on 3-5 seconds then gives me the message all over again. At this rate it would take an hour to download a one minute video. I also get this message in other programs and I don't have a clue how to stop it. Help me please!!!

Website servers can redirect more than once, so you may not see anything happen and may need to click Allow more than once.


See:

  • Firefox/Tools > Options > Advanced > General : Accessibility : [ ] "Warn me when web sites try to redirect or reload the page"

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.

thank you so much....I was going nuts with all those messages. Not sure how the box got checked but had to be me since I'm the only one on here.
