Firefox asks me to redirect on Webmasterworld every time

Firefox needs permission everytime...

Hello everyone. Hoping someone can help me out here, as I've looked but can't find an answer(probably overlooking something easy).

Every time I reply to a post in webmasterworld.com, it takes you to a page where it says you will be redirected. However, Firefox does not redirect me, instead I get a popup that needs my permission to redirect each and every time I post. This does not happen on any of my other installation of Firefox.

Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks in advance :)

Is it treating it as a pop-up, that you need to specifically allow?

Very similar. The same bar shows at the top of the page, labelled by text that says something to the effect of This site is trying to redirect you ...yada yada with a button that says Allow.

Actually it says, "Firefox prevented this site from redirecting you to another page"

That would be FF3. I get it on several sites but only while using FF3.

Yeah, it's a nuisance and I can't find a setting in preferences to stop it.

Thanks you for you help everyone. I must have unchecked it on my other computers, then somehow forgotten and not been able to find it or recognize it this time around. Thanks very much :)
