Im using firefox 56.0.2

I want to deactivate a special redirect feature: I have a website which originally was named and now has the new name i always get automatically redirected to the new .net domain.

On the other hand, i often get the message from firefox: "site wants to redirect to another webpage. do you agree?" or smth like this.

On the web i found some information:
'Firefox/Firefox > Preferences > Advanced > General : Accessibility : [ ] "Warn me when web sites try to redirect or reload the page"'

In 56.0.2, the Advanced page doesnt exist anymore.

So the first question: where do i find the option to turn on / off the auto-redirect?

And the second question: how do i turn off the redirect from an .org to a .net page? perhaps in the about:config or similar?

As i said, the asking before auto-redirect is already enabled, but i dont know where to turn it on / off or set further preferences
AND it doesnt work for the redirect from .org to .net.

I simply dont like a program override my input and there is no way to keep it!

Note that accessibility.blockautorefresh may not handle all circumstances.
Also note that its possible that there is no ".org" page to "fall back to".
