Re: prevent pages from refreshing


Gene
 

I tested the page in a recent version of firefox and for some reason, on the one test I did, the page didn't load properly.  When I tested it in a much older version of Firefox, the page loaded, a musicc stream played automatically, and I was able to read the stream without loosing my place.  I don't know if anything refreshed on the page.  But I read for perhaps a minute or one and one half minutes without problems.  The question is, why do people report different results.  The answer might be helpful in working on the problem.  Whatever the case, a feature for freezing the page, as has been suggested, might be useful.  Very few list members have commented on their experiences with specific pages that have been sent to the list by members.  It might be useful to have many responses from people testing these pages.

An example of a page that refeshes is www.jewishmusicstream.com. It's crazy.
