    IE 9 Auto-Refresh Websites Driving Me Nuts !!!

    I always, I'm sure like others, have found the Drudge Report website auto-refreshes every few minutes which is very annoying .
    I have learned to live with the annoyance but recently I have found that other sites are auto-refreshing also...

    When you are in the middle of reading something the page auto refreshes and you end up back at the top of the page and have to scroll to find where you left off.

    I read that disabling Meta Refresh in IE 9 stops that but after disabling it, it didn't solve the problem.

    Now, the question is, how do you prevent, if at all possible, the auto-refresh that more and more websites are starting to use????

    Thanks guys..

    Of noteworthy mention:
    Note: The use of Meta refresh by websites is decreasing day by day and is being replaced by JavaScript functions or HTTP redirection headers. This method may not work for sites using JavaScript.

    I think this talks about what you already tried, but not sure.

    Well guys, after all this time I figured it out how to stop auto refresh...
    Actually, I Googled it and came across the solution..

    In Internet Explorer, go to Internet Options/ Security/Restricted Sites/and while viewing the website that has auto refresh just click on ADD THIS SITE and that solves the problem.

    Be aware that adding a site to the Restricted Sites list disables other capabilities too. Check the details of the restricted sites by clicking the "custom level" button.

    I did check Joe.
    Being the restrictions only apply to sites I place in the restrictions zone I can live with those restrictions...

    Yes, the restrictions do only apply to the sites in the Restricted zone. I just wanted you to be aware that it was more than disabling some javascript or whatever the site uses. Glad it works for you.
