Hi stomper! Welcome to SevenForums
I can't help you with IE, but to stop Firefox reloading/refreshing pages automatically, do the following:
- Open Firefox browser
- Head to Tools >> Options >> Advanced >> General >> Accessibility
- Tick the option next to Warn me when web sites try to redirect or reload the page
Save your changes.
Checking the above option means you have manually selected not to allow Firefox to automatically reload web pages by adding accessibility.blockautorefresh code
to the about:config
parameters. Now all your auto page refresh
or auto page reload requests by web sites will be ignored by Firefox and you will enjoy an uninterrupted browsing.
Hope this helps.
