How to Stop Auto Refresh in Facebook

If you leave your browser open on the Facebook home page, you may notice that the page automatically refreshes with the most current updates in your News Feed over time. This is due to a meta refresh HTML tag implemented in the Facebook page code. Although some people enjoy this feature, it may be distracting and annoying to you. To stop the automatic refresh in Facebook, you must disable this attribute in your browser. Disabling meta refresh in each browser is slightly different.

Disable Facebook Auto Refresh in Firefox

  • Launch Firefox on your computer. Click the orange “Firefox” button in the upper-left corner, and select “Options.” A new window will appear.
  • Click “Advanced” at the top of the window, and then choose the “General” tab.
  • Place a checkmark next to “Warn me when Web sites try to redirect or reload the page.”
  • Click “OK” to save the changes. A message bar will appear at the top of the website when Facebook tries to update the page. Click “Allow” to allow Facebook to update the page.
