How can I prevent web pages from automatically reloading, such as The Druge Report, etc.
Several web sites I frequent automatically reload their front page whenever they want to...not when I manually refresh...interrupting streaming videos, etc. I do not want these pages to do this, only I want the ability to manually refresh a web page.

This site will most likely not work and in the Knowledge Base you see the content for all Firefox versions and platforms.
- Content Preferences: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/4066
You can block and allow scripts selectively for websites with an extension like NoScript or YesScript.
I believe that enabling this setting in about:config will prevent automatic refresh:
accessibility.blockautorefresh - set it to true
