How do I stop Drudge from autorefreshing?

The about:config trick doesn't work on Drudge. Chrome has an add-on that blocks autorefresh, but it doesn't work on Drudge, either. Apparently Drudge is hell-bent on autorefreshing his page every thirty seconds whether you like it or not. Has anyone figured out how to make Drudge stop autorefreshing? I used to use NoScript, but since Quantum, NoScript has been transformed into a monstrosity I can't make head or tail of.

If you had it working with NoScript in the past, why not ask about that in the NoScript support forum to get help with the Quantum version of NoScript - over here: http://forums.informaction.com/viewforum.php?f=3

It Auto-refreshes every 2 minutes. Source shows this:


(script type="text/javascript") (!-- var timer = setInterval("autoRefresh()", 1000 * 42 * 3); function autoRefresh(){self.location.reload(true);} //--) (/script)

Thanks, I'll try that.

We used to suggest using this bookmarklet for the Drudge Report site.

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

You can check if this still works.

You can create a new bookmark and paste the JavaScript code in its Location field.

Like so?:

  • It didn't work or I'm misunderstanding where to put it.

It is a bookmarklet, so you need to this code (i.e. click the bookmark) every time you open or refresh a page on the Drudge website.

You would have to run the code as a browser script to make this work automatically.

A bookmarklet is a special bookmark where you use JavaScript in the location field instead of a link to a website. You create a new bookmark on the Bookmarks Toolbar and paste the code it its location field. You can give it a name like Drudge.

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