Google search page refreshes itself frequently on firefox beta 15

Posted

Anytime I make query search using google search the result page keeps on refreshing itself without giving me a chance to scroll on results. I think this problem appeared after I started using the Google Image search application.

I have tried clearing all the cache and cookies but that doesn't seem to resolve the problem since the the same problems reappears again

Chosen solution

hello azbua, first of all please update to the current version of firefox - firefox 18.

i suspect that the problem you've described is caused by an addon, but since there are also multiple adware related extensions and customizations present in your current profile, i think it would be best to reset firefox (this will keep your saved bookmarks & passwords).

Firefox 15 was beta about 6 months ago, why are you still using that? Firefox 18 is the current stable, and 19 is the current beta.
