    Firefox reloading pages after they are fully loaded.


    Firefox version:

    Firefox reloading pages after they are fully loaded.-firefox.jpg

    Is anyone else experiencing Firefox reloading a web page after it is already fully loaded? What is happening, is that the browser is reloading the web page while viewing (scrolling) further down the page and reloading the page (same tab and not opening a new one) without no warning or cause for doing so.

    I tried capturing it in a steps recorder scenario, but unfortunately, it doesn't display the problem correctly and it is the same as if I were to take a screenshot of the incident which doesn't display the real time problem accurately either.

    Any ideas what could cause this?

    when crap like this happens, the first thing I do is uninstall, redownload and reinstall. That almost always fixes the problem.

    I am currently on my second (now the third) attempt of that with the same results being produced. I think it is the version of Firefox that is responsible and may have to wait it out until the next stable version.

    Microsoft Edge Browser doesn't do it, so I think Firefox is definitely the culprit; but I am confused as to why they haven't addressed the issue for a week now.

    I had written a ramble on statement of why I don't like FF anymore and deleted it. Not that I don't like FF but the fact that they have made it mess in my eyes. What used to be a light and easy to use with a great GUI and so simple and easy to use. One click and done moves. So I moved to Chrome. I only use FF now as a backup browser.

    It is looking more and more as though I may do the same. I know it is easy to ramble on about why we despise what is going on with services and software these days; but unfortunately most of those rants fall on deaf ears and they move on to the next version and pretend as though it is our fault the product or service failed because we are not using the latest and greatest release or product which sometimes turns out not to be the best choice either.

    I just thought of something. Is there a browser that you pay money for? That way, I'll have a legitimate reason to complain for something that isn't working.

    Of course, now that I think back with my experiences of actually paying for something (like auto login password managers) it is no different - rants seem to still fall on deaf ears!

    What?

    According to this article: Best Web Browsers 2019 | Top Ten Reviews

    Firefox is voted the best free browser available for 2019. Now isn't that something.

    I don't care about VPN's because I have nothing to hide; but it looks more and more like a security issue than a privacy issue when it comes to paying for something.

    Automatic refresh tends to be the website not the browser.

    Thank you very much for that! I kept thinking it was a possibility that the website in question was the culprit and now thinking about this, it makes sense that it is a refresh feature of some sites.

    It does however make browsing unrealistic in the sense that a page should not refresh just scrolling down it. Too many things are fighting for the web pages' attention and destroying the view-ability of the page.

    The only time a page should reload is when something is clicked on it, not just scrolling the page.

    Tell me about it. Bad enough with some page designers who make the page keep jumping back to the top as you are trying to scroll while reading. Reader mode is a way to stop some pages by placing it in a book type print page.
