  1. Aaron says:

    I can’t finish the podcast because the page keeps refreshing. Or is it just me?

  2. Hopefully Chuck or Sean will see this thread and fix it but in the meantime.

    Here’s the culprit line.

    It looks like they set the site to refresh every 5 minutes. I’m pretty sure that wasn’t there before. When I’m writing I usually have a few toolmonger pages open and I just recently noticed that they were refreshing when they hadn’t been before — kinda annoying.

    In the IE6 or IE7 menu: Tools -> Internet Options -> Security -> Custom level settings

    set “Allow Meta Refresh” to Disable

    FireFox 3 has a checkbox in the options dialog box: advanced->general->accessability

    “Warn me when websites try to reload page”

    For Firefox 1.5 and 2.0 I have no answer. The above solutions will turn of refreshing for every site, so be warned.

    Is there a reason you are not just downloading the podcast?

  3. Duh, theres a filter that doesn’t allow commenters to post HTML. So “Here’s the culprit line makes no sense…

    This is what didn’t get posted:

    hopefully the spaces will fool the filter.

  4. Dangnabbit, sites smarter then I thought.

    Basically theres a line that says refresh this pages every 300 seconds…

    Sorry about the multiple posts.

  5. OK the best I can do for Firefox 1 to 2.0 is the Web Developer Toolbar.


    This allows you to turn off Meta Redirects.

    Install it, restart Firefox and just go to the disable menu and tick Disable Meta Redirects.
