How to Stop a Web Page From Redirecting

Knowing how to prevent a web page from redirecting may save you a considerable amount of frustration and increase your productivity. Some websites auto-redirect to specific sites. Although the initial site may have been free from viruses, the new site may be infected. In addition, some users may not notice a redirection and may download files, thinking the site is trusted.
