At times some websites redirect users to other websites for various purposes. However, the important thing is that many scam websites often use this practise to plant spywares and malwares on user’s computers. With Firefox 3 you can prevent such behaviour by following the steps mentioned below.
1.) Open your Firefox 3 instance.
2.) Click on Tools. Next Click on Options.
3.) Click on Advanced tab. Click on sub tab called General.
4.) Select the checkbox which says ” Warn me when websites try to redirect or reload the page”.
5.) Click on Ok.
Once you have setup the feature after following the steps as mentioned above, Firefox will report redirects to other websites with an information bar, the bar will have an option for you to either approve or disapprove the behaviour.
