block auto refresh = true bypassed/ignored by some websites, i.e. FOXBusiness.com

more options

A website I read news on a regular basis, FOXBusiness.com, auto refreshes which is super annoying when you read even worse if you write a comment.

The recommended setting accessibility.blockautorefresh true accessibility.blockautorefresh true

Have no effect on this particular website and it continues to do its auto refresh. I contacted their so-called "support" but never received a reply.

Anyone know how to prevent this "do not auto refresh" setting being bypassed by a website thus continuing to do periodical auto refresh?

Those are general settings and sites can override the Browser since it's coming from their site. Firefox uses what the site gives for it's default you can't change that. Only other way would be for Addons to do what your asking assuming there is a Addon that was created for that. So you will have to go to firefox addon site and see if there is such a Addon to do what your asking.

That ancient setting was meant to help prevent assistive technologies like screen readers from losing their place. It is useless as a security feature because it only addresses a limited number of scenarios. Also, setting it to true prevents normal redirects in various scenarios causing irritating blank pages to appear randomly. I suggest setting it back to its default value of false. (I don't know who recommended you use it, but they might not fully understand how it works, or should I say, doesn't work.)

Regarding losing form data on websites, you could consider an add-on that saves data as you type. These are the ones I know have been around for years, but there might be others:
