I would like to stop the annoying reload Drudgereport.com does. How?

Postáilte

Everyone going to the above mentioned website experiences the same annoying reloads. Please add a method to Firefox like IE has that can restrict sites reloading, assuming this doesn't exist already. Thanks

I tried this script with Greasemonkey and I haven't seen a refresh. I don't know if it also works with Tampermonkey and Violentmonkey.

I had no problem with Drudgereport.com


Many site issues can be caused by corrupt cookies or cache.

Warning ! ! This will log you out of sites you're logged in to. You may also lose any settings for that website.

If there is still a problem, Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link} by holding down the <Shift> (Mac=Options) key, and then starting Firefox.

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Did this help?

While you are in safe mode;

Try disabling graphics hardware acceleration in Firefox. Since this feature was added to Firefox it has gradually improved but there are still a few glitches.

Thanks Fred,

I have tried both suggestions above but the same (.....for years now!) "problem" or annoying website trait still exists. I don't think it is a matter with my use of Firefox. Like I said above, I am fairly certain everyone reading the news headlines there get an automatic reload after about 4 minutes. Any other suggestions or could the developers there add a "restricted site" way to handle the annoyance like I have seen IE has?

You can use a bookmarklet to disable the reload on drudgereport.com or possibly convert the script to an extension like Greasemonkey or Tampermonkey.

javascript:clearInterval(timer);void(autoRefresh=null);

Running this greasemonkey script at drudgereport.com now but the page still reloads. What is wrong?

Every time I type "about config" in the search bar Startpage does an internet search. I don't get the warning message. What am I doing wrong?

Hello Easrcreek,

You left out the colon between "about" and "config" - it's:
about:config

You should set the value of that preference to true ......

(you want to block the autorefresh)

The accessibility pref accessibility.blockautorefresh won't work for Drudge report as this only works for a location change via a meta tag and is meant for users with certain disabilities. This pref only works in this case and not in other cases like a reload via JavaScript that Drudge uses. This is one of the reason that this setting was removed from Options/Preferences.

Drudge report still uses the same code for auto refresh as you can see if you inspect the page source.

var timer = setInterval("autoRefresh()", 1000 * 40 * 3);
function autoRefresh(){self.location.reload(true);}

Did you try the bookmarklet ?

  • javascript:clearInterval(timer);void(autoRefresh=null);

You can create a new bookmark and paste the JavaScript code in its Location field where you normally place the URL.

You need to invoke the bookmarklet each time you load or refresh a Drudge report page unlike the Greasemonkey script that would run automatically.

You may only have to change http:// to https:// is this line or add this line to support both protocols.

Changed about:config to true and added the second line to my copied script (..and saved it) and it still reloads. Frustrating. I'm starting to wonder if Matt Drudge has done something extra and hidden to make sure no reload blocks can occur to ensure profits stay in place? :)

I don't understand this: "Did you try the bookmarklet ?

@ Eastcreek :

I noticed that you marked one of my posts as "Chosen Solution"; would you be so kind as to remove that mark by clicking on the "Undo" button (to the right of that post) and then mark cor-el's post by clicking on the "Solved the problem" button to the right of his last post ?

Thank you in advance !

I would but I don't see an "undo" button like your describing. Oh, and your seeing that I missed the colon actually fixed that issue I was having!
