Google Chrome Auto Refresh Turn Off

google chrome auto refresh turn off I would like to stop autorefresh page in Google Chrome, because it is a very annoying and memory consuming issue and I can't work with the developers tools. I'm trying to delete the refresh and setTimeout function from the script using Chrome's developers tools but I have no results. How can I block this annoying feature even for a while from the console?


Since <meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="300; URL=?refresh_ce"> removal using DevTools is not sufficient (it doesn't stop page from refreshing) I've executed this code in the console: window.onbeforeunload = function(){ return 'Reload?';}. onbeforeunload event will fire before page reload and you'll be able to choose to abort reloading. From what I've tested the dialog shows up only once.

You can simply disable feature of page auto refresh, by following steps:

  • Open chrome browser tab
  • Type in your address bar chrome://flags
  • Search #automatic-tab-discarding and make it 'Disabled' from 'Default'
  • Restart your browser
  • you are done !
