How to disable this in Firefox?

Postby Google Spider on Sun Jun 15, 2008 3:32 pm

It stops page loading whenever there is a redirection. This happens all the time when I'm making new posts in forums or logging into Yahoo. Fed up of clicking "Allow". Any way to disable this?

One thing would be to check and make sure that cookies are allowed. Googling around firefox support said that not allowing cookies can sometimes send firefox in "redirect loops" because it is confused. Check, just to be sure and reply here if that doesn't work.

Yes, cookies are allowed ( even third party cookies are allowed). Java, JavaScript, image loading -- I've allowed everything. I don't think its infinite, its just a function in Firefox to stop a page from redirecting to another page without conformation.

I found a "redirect remover" extension that you could try. I've never tried it but it's worth a shot. Download it here:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/537

After it's installed, restart and go to Tools -> Addons -> Extensions -> Redirect Remover -> Preferences and add your sites to it if it's not already there
