Doesn't work at all for me Bewertet mit 1 von 5 Sternen

I can't get this to work at all. I added one site that I wanted to refresh-block, and clicked Enable RefreshBlocker and The list acts as a Blacklist. It didn't work. I then tried all eight combinations of Enable Debug Mode on/off, RegExp on/off for the URL (even though it didn't use a regular expression), and Test against Current URL/Target URL. I restarted FF between each change of options. No combination worked: the page I wanted to stop refreshing, kept refreshing. It's a shame; I really want this functionality and no other addon offers it.

I'm running FF 35.0.1 on Win 7 Home Premium SP1.

excellent, but doesnt work inside tag noscript отлично, но не работает внутри тега NoScript Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

like this: <head>...
<noscript><meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; URL=/redirect.php"></noscript>...
(firefox 28)

Exactly what I was looking for! Except for one minor thing... Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

It's great! It blocks the automatic reload on Weather Underground, and that's exactly what I wanted.

I only gave this 4 out of 5 stars though because I don't like how I can't disable the infobox. I mean, I feel that an option should exist to NOT show it. It's an eyesore. Y'know?

Other than that though, it does exactly what I wanted it to do: block Weather Underground's automatic reload. I just hope that the next version of RefreshBlocker will include the ability to never show the infobox, and I hope that it gets created and released very soon.

WORKS LIKE A CHAMP! Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Apparently some people don't know the difference between meta refresh, redirect and javascript methods of refresh, reload, etc.. - I needed a nice clean & simple META REFRESH block and .. ZOMG! - IT WORKS!! - Thank you very much!

I was still redirected to damn linkbucks. I need something like NoScript but with a black list and not a white list because most sites I allow.

Does what it say. Good Extension. ty

Works, but is not very user friendly Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternen

+ Disables meta refresh

- Prevents every kind of page redirection
This makes it impossible to login some websites which redirect user data into some login script page.

There should have been a toolbar button, from which user could be able to temporarily disable this extension when needed.

Pretty Please.

Doesn't work. Sure, it blocks the meta refresh, but it then prevents the entire page from being loaded. So now, instead of just blocking the meta refresh, the entire page is just stopped on a white background.

É a única maneira de conseguir ler a homepage do UOL, pois a página recarrega muito rápido e as matérias desaparecem ou mudam de lugar.

It does what it claims. The addon also works on FF 11.0a1 (nightly at this moment), after manually editing firefox maxversion parameter into install.rdf file. I think white/black lists is a better approach than that of the built-in FF feature to avoid all or none redirections.

This extension only blocks META refresh, not javascript refresh. I found a script (for GreaseMonkey or Scriptish addons) for blocking javascript refreshings which I've succesfully tested in (example pointed in previous reviews here) after adding the URL, or a wildcard, in the include list of the script options (but be careful with the wildcards as using it kinda whitelist mode, in some pages, will block interstitial advertising loaded previously to the loading of the main page, so it could block the latter, and doesn't have alerts).

I second previous reviewers asking for an option to place an icon in the status bar to ease the addition of white/black lists rules; and also asking for an option to avoid the alert message on blocked META refresh, that's something that can be alerted through statusbar icon also.Although fortunatelly, you can remove the alert message strip by manually editing the addon, but be careful because you won't get any feedback when redirections got blocked and you may not notice it missing something... using 7-zip:
- Open compressed file (.xpi addon file)
- Go to ..\chrome\RefreshBlocker.jar and Open Inside it
- Go to ..\content\RefreshBlocker.js and edit (F4) it
- Remove code from (including, search it):... this.addNotification ...until the (including):... } ... inmediately previous to (excluding, search it)... this.isBlocked ...
- Close editor and 7-zip accepting to overwrite and to update the compressed file when needed

And about the addon options, it's needed more information... is debug mode creating logs? where? maybe a button can be added to acess log from options window or from a potential status bar button. Is the javascript regular expressions the only way to use "wildcards" in the white/black list as it seems? It should be specified that javascript regexp doesn't seems to work if they are enclosed in /slashes/ as the guide I linked right before claims...Sumarizing, this addon has pontential to be a must have addon if author could add the javascript refresh block feature, add previously described extra options, and add a bit of user help.

Absolutely did not work using the blacklist for drudgereport using Firefox or Pale Moon browsers.

Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

Better than the default Firefox redirect blocker, but there is a learning curve. Works best using a whitelist with regexp definitions. Needs a toolbar icon for adding sites to whitelist (or blacklist) like both Noscript and AdBlock Plus have. Then it would be perfect. To use it, first turn off the default Firefox redirect blocker (about:config in location bar -> Toggle accessibility:blockautorefresh to false).

Great addition Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Does exactly what is claimed. Super! The only pick that I have is the window that opens to let us know the program is working. It takes up too much space at the top of the screen and gets in the way of clicking on other tabs. A way to turn this off would be a big addition.

Open mouth insert foot…?

Yes… Firefox has a function to block refresh load [Options>Advance>General Tab] = Warn me when ect..ect.. checked.. However, this Firefox preference is very limited and has absolutely No-User Control incorporated and /or capabilities to modify actual web page behaviors… Many impious Web sites such as News organizations are notorious for refreshing (Tab) excessively to a point were surfing with such a site open (tab) makes it very difficult and slow to surf the internet. Excessive behaviors (Tab) that have the capability to by-pass or plainly ignore this basic (Firefox) block function.

For those who have critique about this add-on are so wrong for so many reasons. There are despicable web site developers who provide many Major web sites (For A Fee $$). The ability to over ride and or overwrite user’s Web Browser preferences…Such as MSN, New York Times, Reuters and Washington Post to name but a few. Web sites who Pay$$ immoral web developers big money $$$$. To high jack your web browser’s preference to accommodate their agenda and increase their add revenue$$$...

What RefreshBlocker add-on does do?
With a user’s input (Black list) and configuration details combined with page info form in Firefox you are able to identify and block the culprit site addresses causing the excessive refreshing of open web site (tab). It also, has diminished the capacity of these morally wrong and malicious web sites from excessively refreshing an open web page (Tab). This add-on’s fully functional control mechanism is sorely needed in standard Firefox 3.6.10 !!!


Wish list for lazy me would be? For developer to incorporate a black list option to encompass the whole web page (refresh) and all links (refresh) associated within the same web page..?
