How to force Firefox to allow redirection?
« on: October 05, 2012, 04:18:58 PM »
I'm using Firefox 15.0.1.  It doesn't automatically allow a page to redirect to another page, presumably as a security measure.  I use some forums, e.g. Notefrog, Fountain Pen Network, which use auto-redirection a lot.  Firefox's behaviour becomes annoying when, e.g., I do a search, open several new tabs from the search results, then find I have to specifically Allow each page to redirect.  I did a (very) quick Google, but only turned up similar mild complaints.

Please, is there any way to force Firefox to automatically allow redirections in specified domains?

Not sure what you mean. I am using Firefox 15.0 and it says Firefox is up to date. Did this start happening with 15.0.1?

If I type in froogle.com, it redirects to www.google.com/shopping.

Further, if I do a google search for
Code: Text [Select]
  1. site:notefrog.com inurl:forum
and open several results in tabs, I see no issue with those pages, I don't get any security warning.

If bad things happen to other people, it's karma. If bad things happen to me, it's kismat!

Thanks, Curt!  I had to uncheck that box.  What I would like, though, is for default behaviour to be to warn about redirection, except on specified sites.
