META refresh workaround?

    I've noticed that some websites are redirecting users by using the META tags:

    <!-- I am borrowing from Wikipedia :) -->
    <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=" />
    Is there anyway around this in Firefox? I've tried using scripts in Greasemonkey but they don't solve the issue perfectly. There was also another extension called RefreshBlocker. It does the trick but instead of showing the website, it shows a small yellow bar across the top. The bar reads where the META tags are redirecting you to and the interval.

    Help? :)

    Not sure if it's too much of an extension for you, but the web developer extension that i am using has the option to disable meta refresh (among other things such as javascript, css, referer, etc).

    If you're looking for something simpler than that, though, I'm not sure what to suggest. Maybe others can give a suggestion.
