Every time I try to refresh a web page I get a pop-up message from firefox informing me about the fact that it has to resend information or command.

To display this page, Firefox needs to send information that will repeat any previous action (such as a search or confirmation of an order).

On the "confirmation of an order," don't refresh the page. You might end up ordering more than what you want.

Normally, that message means there was a problem with sending or receiving that page. Reloading the page is the normal thing to do.

This isn`t about confirmation of orders. Is a web page I use on work and I need to reload it every 2 minutes to see changes in real time.

Ahh. You did not say that.

Go to the Mozilla Add-ons Web Page {web Link} (There’s a lot of good stuff here) and search for what you want.

I allready have a firefox auto-refresh add-on. The problem is that every time the page is reloded I get that message telling me that "to refresh this page firefox needs to send information that will repeat any previous action". And I have to click permit every single time and is annoying. Thank you for trying to help me.

It sounds more like it's the site should do this automatically not a Browser issue. From what I am reading the site itself should do the refresh itself and not be a FF Browser to refresh to see the updates.

Try using {Ctrl + F5} to reload the page and by-pass the cache. That will avoid getting that "post data" warning message.

This is NOT a site issue, in that only Firefox gives this response. If I access the site with another browser (e.g. Chrome, Opera), there's no problem, they don't give that message.

Hi uh_clem, does this work for you:

No, that's just another way for me to get the same message

This behavior only started with the latest release of Firefox. And now, the day after I posted here about this, the behavior has suddenly disappeared. This morning I'm no longer observing this problem. I have no idea what's different. I've made no changes. I have to consider this resolved (though I've no idea how) until it recurs.

And now a few days later, the aberrant behavior is back, appearing just as mysteriously as it had vanished.

Still not a problem with any other browser that I've tried, only Firefox. If this continues, I'll simply have to stop using it.

How are you opening or reaching this specific page?

Is that via a bookmark or by navigating from the main page?

You get this error when there is POST data involved to request this specific page. A bookmark can store this POST data.

I get to this page by navigating from the main page.

I have no problem when getting to the page, I only see this when I refresh the page.
