Are these the ones you get, this page has asked to redirect etc, and then it gives hotkeys to allow etc.

It calls itself an alert and I do get to it eventually by tabbing. Do
you still think it is a dialogue?

Is there a hotkey for the alerts about logging into a wifi network? I
am currently in a building where the wifi needs a sign in after 10
minutes of inactivity and I can't figure out how to get to that sign
in page quickly and easily. For now, I am opening a new window in
firefox and tabbing around until I find the "open login page" option.

There must be a better way to do this.....

After waiting a moment, tab once. You are now in a list of categories.
Start down arrowing until you get to security.
If down arrowing stops moving you before you get there, up arrow
once then continue down arrowing.
Once you get to security, start tabbing until you get to a checkbox
that says something like remember logins. Uncheck it with the space

There is no ok button in this dialog-like structure. Settings take
immediate effect. This is a web page in the browser and since you
are on a web page that mimics a dialog, do whatever you want to do
that you would do while on a web page after you change the setting.
That is, go to another page by using a book mark, close the browser,

I am using the extended service release of Firefox on windows 10
machine with the stable release of NVDA. Sometimes Firefox will put
up notices, such as when it offers to remember passwords or when it
informs you that has blocked a redirection from the site. How can I
access these in order to either tell it I don’t want it to save a
password or that I do wanted to allow a redirection?
