Why Windows Explorer 11 repeats to the beginning of web page

Hello forum, I want to be able to use some yahoo technical forums. But when there, every minute or so Windows Explorer 11 brings me back to the beginning of the forum. Sort of like a webpage refresh. I do not know how to turn this feature? off. Any help??

Thanks for any help, Stan
