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 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

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 !!!

Thank-you

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..?

WARNING!: This addon does NOT work. It does NOT block MSN from loading when sighing out of hotmail, even after adding various ways 2 'black list' - uselsss.

Please do not post addons that don't work - just wastes people's time, like some vandal.

It would be nice to have an on/off switch in the page context menu or in the statusbar (better).

Whitelist problem 3.5.7 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

None of my whitelist entries are working anymore in 3.5.7. Everything gets blocked until I click through. Anybody else see the same thing?

What a relief!

I used to ask, how these people have taken the right to refresh without my permission on my computer.

Now I can block entitlement.

I'd like to make a correction to my last review; I said firefox 3.5.1 has included similar functionality, BUT what I didn't say is that i'd still prefer this extension, because in plus compared to native firefox behaviour, it shows you the meta refresh time and also the refresh URL,so you can be aware of what's next (firefox only temporarily block the redirect but does not show WHERE it will go)

Firefox 3.5? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Do you have an update in the works for Firefox 3.5?

I love it / suggestion Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a great addon. ;) I love it because i can read articles entirely (before that, I was always annoyed with an automatic reloading!).
One suggestion :
Would it be possible to put the top yellow explanation ("refreshbloker has blocked ...") at the bottom of the page when I add the main website that I am visiting in a new whitelist ? note: I have already added other websites in the first withlist (so no yeallow box at all), but I would need a second (just to put the yellow box at the bottom) !
Thanks by advance ;)

Same case as what vajras has pointed out.

Suddenly doesn't work on meta tag anymore....

Can't figure out the reasons even on a clean profile.
