For awhile, when I returned from viewing a forum post, the browser would automatically refresh so the link I had just clicked on showed as having been looked at, same as if I clicked on the Reload current page icon.

I don't remember if this happened here or not but it did in other forums. Now it stopped doing that and I am wondering if it's something I've changed (unknowingly) or it's a forum change?

@ Ztruker

Could it be to do with: Edit | Preferences | Advanced | Cache | Compare the page in the cache to the page on the network:

Every time I view the page
When the page is out of date
Once per session
Never

Regards,

Dave.

Mine is set to Every time I view the page. I don't think I've ever changed it.

Thanks for the suggestion though.

Check the (about:config) value of, accessibility.blockautorefresh.
If 'true', that behavior may occur.

Otherwise, it could be an extension causing similar to happen.

Sorry I didn't post back sooner. Mine is set to False.

I'll try from a new profile. That will eliminate extensions or config changes.

New profile didn't make any difference. Same behavior.

Oh well, not a big deal, just a small annoyance.

Where does this occur?
Here?
All forums? Only select forums?
