To do the same for Internet Explorer, do the following :
In Internet Explorer go to Tools Ė> Internet Options and click on the security tab.
In the security tab click on the Custom level button towards the bottom.
In the security settings window, scroll down till you come across the Miscellaneous group and select disable in Allow META REFRESH option and click on Ok.
Thatís it the auto-refreshing of the page wonít happen once you make this change.
