About page redirect makes firefox angry #330

Firefox doesn't like automatic redirects/autorefresh anymore. When accessing the About page, a banner appears with "Firefox prevented this page from automatically redirecting to another page".

Sure, this warning can be turned off in about/config, but your average user won't do this.
Worth checking if the redirect is absolutely necessary.
