Under the built in phishing and malware settings, it explains
that this new feature warns you about potentially dangerous sites
and possible malware or phishing dangers. I believe this would
involve the redirection issue. You are given an option when you
load such a site and you can allow or block it.

The options interface has changed and has problems in the new
version. It looks to me as though it is supposed to be a web
page or more or less web page-like interface. For whatever
reason, NVDA can't be placed in browse mode when in options and
that means that in some fields, related text can't be read. For
example, there is text you can see with object navigation
related to the check to see if Firefox is the default browser
that tells you whether firefox is currently the default
browser. I haven't looked carefully through the perhaps sixty
or seventy settings looking for occasional text that I have to
find with object navigation or using alt b to have NVDA read
every object on the screen, but I suspect there is text for
certain other settings that isn't read and can't be moved to by
tabbing. Tabbing is the only way to move through the interface
from the keyboard.
The interface has been significantly rearranged, with only
four categories and different groupings such as startup in each
category. You tab through them all and through every item in
every grouping. There is no command to move from grouping to
grouping when working within a certain category. If you don't
want to work in a certain grouping, it doesn't matter. If there
are five items in the grouping, you must tab through each one.
It's like ribbons without the commands that make ribbons
efficient to work with.
Since the intent seemns to be to imitate ribbons in the
layout, I think the move by grouping commands used in ribbons
should be provided, that is, control right arrow and control
left arrow to move forward and backward by grouping. Those who
don't like ribbons or are afraid of them don't have to worry.
You work with the interface as you always have, but there are a
lot more items to tab through in each category. Therefore, a
means is necessary to allow the user to move by grouping.
And, this is very important, where is the command to have
Firefox alert you if a page tries to refresh or redirect? I
didn't find it and I don't think it's there. I searched
carefully and repeatedly. This is a crucial command.
