I used about:config and toggled accessibility.blockautorefresh and set its value to true.
but one news site I use still auto-refreshes. Any ideas how to make it stop?
Additional System Details
- Shockwave Flash 32.0 r0
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:65.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/65.0
That accessibility setting only blocks a redirect done via a meta tag in the HTML code and it does not apply to HTTP Location header (301, 302). It doesn't work for other ways to redirect and that is the main reason this setting has been removed from the Options/Preferences page.
