Closed Bug 680565 Opened 9 years ago Closed 6 days ago
I was reading at the middle of the page, and the page got reloaded and brought to the top
Hello, Mac OS X 10.6.8 (10K549). Firefox 5.0. In the prefs, I have ticked "Prévenir lorsque des sites Web tentent de rediriger ou de recharger la page" : "Warn when Web sites try to redirect or reload the page". I was reading the article http://lexpansion.lexpress.fr/carriere/licenciee-pour-un-vol-de-poireaux-pourris_259374.html at the middle of the page, and the page got reloaded and brought to the top — because, you know, for these news sites, the world is moving 24/7, so any article you read has to be refreshed every 5 minutes, in case something new is interesting, like… a new loading of the ads. So I lost my reading. I expect something else : a bar appears at the top, warns me "This page wants to reload itself.", and reloads the page only when I accept. Thanks for correcting that. Nicolas
WFM on Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; rv:9.0a1) Gecko/20110829 Firefox/9.0a1 After the page is reloading, it remains where it were before. Try updating to the latest Firefox and see if the issue is still reproducing: http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/
Considering comment1, setting resolution to Resolved WFM.

This would not be “working correctly”, this would just be “less worse”. * The expected behaviour is : * A bar appears at the top, non-modal, asks me "This page wants to reload itself", and reloads the page only if and when I accept. The W3C's Web accessibility guidelines forbid the current behaviour. On some pages, the current user experience is particularly bad : I am watching a video and the auto-reload breaks it, and then when I find again my video it is stopped and back at its beginning. And this is sometimes even worse : I am writing a comment on the article, and boom ! the article gets reloaded, and I have lost my writing. This is data loss. On some pages, the auto-reload is every 1 minute !

This primary behavior in question here is the reload (which is not by itself critical), which in turn causes the comment to be lost. I can't reproduce this on windows with http://www.lexpress.fr/emploi/licenciee-pour-un-vol-de-poireaux-pourris_1436781.html#article_comments > On some pages, the auto-reload is every 1 minute ! please cite some URLs

Wayne, you should be able to reproduce the problem — or at least the reload and the data loss — with the page www.francetvinfo.fr/france/en-pleine-sortie-scolaire-un-lyceen-refoule-a-l-entree-d-une-centrale-nucleaire_538367.html
works for me on vista with nightly build. https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-mozilla-central/
