Firefox Reloads Closed Tabs

Postby Brennen on Tue Jun 24, 2014 8:37 am

Hi,

This is my first post. Let me jump into a question right of the bat...
I have been experiencing some trouble with my Firefox browser.
Sometimes when I have closed a tab, that tab keeps on reloading on another active tab.
It is frustrating, as you can imagine, one second I will be busy reading, then it will
reload the closed tab and internet down here is not that fast at the best of times.
I have been using Linux Mint on a part time basis for about 2 months now, and I
am still a novice user.

Thank you in advance
Brennen

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

This all depends on the what code is on the webpage you've loaded in the firefox tab.
This is usually javascript from the website that kicks in.
However there is a very nice firefox plugin that let you control that javascript, and gives you a little bit more control : https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... /noscript/ .
Give it a try.

Hope that helps. :wink:

Thank you for the help ktheking.

I never did get Firefox to stop doing the reloading, but it seems that it does not do it that often anymore.
