Stop webpages automatically reloading
If the extension doesn't work:
1. open chrome://extensions and check that it is installed and enabled
2. open the "options" page and check that the "Disable Meta Refresh elements in pages" option is selected and that the address of the website you don't want to refresh is listed in the blacklist.
Note: the extension does not prevent redirection - if the address shown in the Chrome address bar changes when the page reloads then the extension will not prevent it reloading. Also, it only prevents reloading of the whole page. It will not prevent sub-frames within a page reloading.
