I keep my browser security at a slightly higher level than usual, and get prompted by any unusual activity.
Any idea why hearth.com is continuously redirecting to a different page?
I get a banner alarm each time Firefox prevents it, but just curious as to why it's happening on this site. I rarely get it on any other, but it happens on each page here. Used to happen before the update as well.

Thanks.

Not sure why you would be getting here but the setting for that is really not for security.

Mozilla Support says'

The setting in "Options/Preferences > 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.

Might trying clearing your cache to see if that works.
  • Firefox/Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Cached Web Content: "Clear Now"

Thanks webfish. I'll give it a try. I've had a malware browser redirect virus in the past, that's the only reason I keep it on. I appreciate the help.
