I agree the browser should be idiot-proofed, but it should also provide people who know what they are doing to choose to exercise personal responsibility.
I also want this stupid warning message to stop popping up. It's really annoying. I know that the previous page is outdated, but i need the page before to show up, and not have to keep clicking away the Warning message. If only they made Mozilla Firefox with an option to cancel this message I would be happy.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to certain web pages
2.Hit "back' button
Actual Results:  
This is a built in feature and I'm certain you're aware of it.

What happens is I sigh deeply and stop to click the button then proceed.
Sometimes I have to do it 2 or three times in a row.

Expected Results:  
Give us a way to disable it.
There is MUCH complaint on the web.

Considering going to Opera which doesn't have this "feature".

Set an option for advanced users.   I want to disable this warning.
I don't need FF to tell me when I am refreshing a page I got to via a button rather than a link. This is especially annoying with games such as Travian which automatically refresh and pop the message up when I'm doing something else. There has to be a way to disable this thing... as simple as changing a 1 to a 0 in about:config, but how about a plug-in ?
