I does not happen after a fresh install, however after running firefox for several weeks. Removing and reinstalling does not help. The problem makes browsing these sites virtually impossible Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Just visit the website, page will reload constantly (does not happen at install, only after several weeks of usage) Actual Results: Constantly refreshing websites Expected Results: Refresh the page as is normally does. I suspect it only happens on pages that do have to refresh, although it seems the interval gets disrupted
Did you try this page in IE ? Doesn't it do the same there ?
aha... extra information I found I get this problem when I have styleXP installed and enabled. I have now disabled it and firefox runs fine again. I suppose this helps you guys a lot further ;)
Meta refresh tag produces constant reloads at 1 second intervals, no matter what refresh rate is specified. Happening at every site that uses meta refresh tag. Reproducible always with following simple html: <html> <head> <title>Testing meta tag refresh in Firefox</title> <meta HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" CONTENT="900"> </head> <body> <center><h2>this page should only refresh every 900 seconds.</h2></center> </body> </html> Platform = Win2k, Firefox 1.0PR Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040913 Firefox/0.10.1
The problem happens on my Windows 2000 SP4 computer when accessing www.eurosport.com or www.b92.net every 20-30 seconds. The provided meta tag html does reproduce the problem. The web sites with this problem are virtually impossible to browse.
I am having the same problem; websites refreshing. I don't think I have styleXP or the like. See http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=266623 for the thought process. Thanks, m.

I can confirm this. But this does not always happen. If I leave the page for a long time (say overnight), then it'll start refreshing every second at some point, even the meta tag says to refresh every 10 minutes or so.
Probably a manifestation of bug 291386.
Reporter, do you see this if you run a trunk build http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-trunk/ bug 291386 is largely resolved and I don't have trouble with any of the mentioned websites. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20060629 Minefield/3.0a1
