Webpage reloads every time I visit?

Postby offrhode92 » Wed Dec 14, 2016 8:35 pm

Every time I open LDS.org, doesn't matter if it's the home page, or jumping straight into scriptures, donations, etc from bookmarks, the page always refreshes itself a few seconds after fully loading. Only happens in Safari.

MacBook Pro, OSX 10.12.2, Safari 10.0.2.

Anyone know what might cause this?

It used to happen to me regularly in both Firefox and Chrome, but stopped a while ago. Hopefully they will fix it for Safari soon too.

This problem isn't even on our radar. In other words, we did not attempt to fix Firefox or Chrome but we're glad it's working for you.

Does this problem happen in an incognito window? Are their browser extensions installed? Does it happen on another Mac?

Good call! Disabled KaBlock ad blocker and that seems to have stopped it. So I guess I'll just live with it.

Can you disable the ab blocker for certain pages or domains? You might want to disable ad blocking on lds.org since they'll never serve ads anyway.
Have you searched the Wiki?
Try using a Google search by adding "site:tech.lds.org/wiki" to the search criteria.

It doesn't seem to have site-specific settings. I'll send feedback to the developers. It's less annoying now that I know what causes it.
