I go to Slate.com for my daily news fix. Slate periodically refreshes the page (every 5 minutes?) and this is very annoying, especially when I am nearly at the bottom and the refresh takes me to the top again. How can I disable the auto refresh?
Issue 2 with Slate.com: At the top of the Slate home page there is bar with the words Briefing, News & Politics, Arts, Life, etc, etc. What drives me almost insane is that when my mouse cursor travels over one of these words a pop up pull down menu instantly appears and of course blocks what I may be trying to view. I need to maneuver the mouse to make the always unwanted pop up menu disappear.
It is obvious why this bar was strategically placed at the top of the page. Slate hopes to attract users to reading additional topics. I think we should have a choice to disable this pop-up.
In summary, is there a way of disabling:
1. the auto page refresh
2. disabling pop-up windows when the mouse cursor passes over words coded to react in this manner.
I believe we the users should be in control what features we want active or not.
I use and have explored NoScript and AdBlock for solutions but no luck so far.
