Saved by an abundance of caution - Firefox w NoScript

My default browser is Firefox with NoScript. It is a pain, a lot of things do not work including slimy redirects with possibly malicious intent. Earlier today, I wrote the Advisory Board about using someone’s picture and story for the SANS Boston 2016 Brochure. I got a couple replies so when this came in I ASSUMED it was another reply and clicked on it; dumb. It is a redirect. But I was saved by my operating environment. Now, how to find out how to cause redirects to send me a popup asking for my permission.
