I am using Firefox 56 and in versions prior to 56 there was an option under
Options > Advanced called “Warn you when websites try to redirect or reload the page,” which blocked automatic website refreshes and redirects when selected. It showed a warning and a button to manually allow the refresh/redirect at the top of the webpage. I’ve had this option enabled for years.
Now that Firefox has “reorganized” the
Options interface as of version 56, this option is no longer present and indeed the browser refreshes and redirections occur automatically once again.
How would one prevent automatic website refresh/redirects in Firefox 56?
