User Help for Mozilla Firefox

I am running Firefox 12 (current for Linux - Fedora 16) and since this version (of both) has been up have a small problem.
Each time I go to a particular web-page (which happens to be frequent for me), I enter my username and then before the password is requested, I get a popup telling me the site is being re-directed (Is that OK?). Since I know this site and it happens everytime, I have looked for some way to change the requirement to ask me about re-direction (I would like to over-ride this permananently for this site only - i.e. I would like to NOT have the popup and just go there for this site ONLY).
I can find nothing in preferences, even in the advanced menu.
Anyone know how?
Disable “Warn me when websites try to redirect or reload the page” under Preferences > Advanced > General.
Gingerbread Man: I only wish you were right in Firefox 12. I would love to send you a screenshot, but that does not seem to be an option.
I looked first in the advanced preferences expecting to find this, then I looked again when I saw the answer posted in the forum.
THIS SCREEN DOES NOT CONTAIN THIS OPTION IN FIREFOX 12.
Thanks for tryiing.
That's odd. You can see in the following support article what the preferences window should look like.
You can try switching the preference from a different route:
Could someone with a knowledgebase account please edit the “Uploading for general use” section? Both Tinypic (images only load once in a blue moon) and Imageshack (no link to full-sized image for unregistered users; was previously hacked) are awful nowadays, and while Photobucket is fine, it requires registration.
postimage.org and imgur.com seem like good choices.
OK, I did a yum update (all) and now I have Firefox 13. I see the option now. It was turned OFF (no warning wanted) but I get one.
Turned it on, and I get a warning.
Turned if off and I get a warning.
Oh well, thanks - the option just does not work.
OK I followed the extended trick instructioins and the value shows as FALSE (correctly)
However there is one more entry there and that one is true:
Perhaps thhis is the beast I need to switch, will try. NOPE did not do it
Unless I need to restart Firefix entirely for these to work?????
Best to try restarting, Many of the prefs do not take effect without a restart.

OK, I have even re-booted. The check box indicated is off saying that I don't want warnings.
(in fact, I do want warnings in general, but not for this site - oh well)
Soo, it is a bug as the warning still appears. I reported the bug.
Thanks for your suggestions.
