Opera Browser Usage and Support Forum

Undesirable page reload in Opera
page is auto reloading with no reason for that!

Hi all,

I have a very strange problem with Opera (in other browsers the same page works well).

I will not post a code of the page, because I hope that if this problem is well-known, you will be able to understand what I am talking about.

It is very simple. I have a page with menu driven by css. There are a few DIVs that turn visible/invisible depending on the particular button pressed.
When you open the page, initial DIV (div "A") is shown. When you press "b" button, DIV "B" becomes visible, and DIV "A" becomes hidden.

The problem is that when I press button in my menu, browser shows DIV "B" only for a second or less, and right after that Opera reloads the page. Just like if I pressed F5 button! WHY?! (nothing like that in other browsers!) I have no explanation for that. Of course, after that reloading only initial DIV (div "A") is visible.

Does anybody know, what can be a reason for that behaviour of Opera? Is there any way to restrict Opera from refreshing page?

I am really desperate with this situation, because it is absolutely strange and inexplicable!

Suggestion - under Tools > Preferences, choose the Advanced tab and then select Browsing. Play with the "Loading" option at the top of the page until you like the behavior your get.
