Resend confirmation dialog will not stop popping up, despite following instructions

Posted

I have a website that performs a reload() of a page periodically. Despite all that I've tried, I cannot keep the following dialog from popping up in Firefox: "To display this page, Firefox must send information that will repeat any action (such as a search or order confirmation) that was performed earlier."

I have tried the following: 1 - implementing post.redirect.get on the web page 2.- Going to Tools->Options->Advanced and unchecking/checking the "Warn me when websites try to redirect or reload the page" checkbox (it was already unchecked, but I tried it both ways just in case). 3 - going to about:config and setting browser.sessionstore.postdata to 1

NONE of these have resolved the problem. Any ideas?

If you've reached that page via sending POST data in a form then you may not be able to do anything about this.
GET data appended to the URL (location bar) usually doesn't pose any problems, but if Firefox needs to send POST data from a possibly hidden form then Firefox will always ask for confirmation.
If you can reach that page directly then you can try that.

Thanks, Cor-el, that actually helped a lot. I poked through the login process, and found one form using POST unecessarily (no data was being sent, it was just classified 'method=POST').

Once I removed that definition, everything works. Seems kind of silly that this is only an issue with Firefox, and not Chrome, Safari, or IE.
