Web browser keeps reloading page

31 Replies 5,061 Views Created 19-03-2013
When using the web browser with JavaScript on, the web page will automatically reload every 20 seconds or so. I've visited various sites and it always does the same reloading. Is there any way to stop this (and keep JavaScript on)?

The same thing was happening to me the other day when using this forum (other sites were fine). I left it for a few hours and when I came back it was OK. Sorry I can't be of any help, just thought I'd share my problem too.

Thanks for the input. It always does the reloading, whatever I'm site I'm on. I think it started since a fw update a few months ago. I've had the vita since launch and it didn't used to do it.

Still waiting on a response. Its because of things like this why I'll NOT be getting a ps4. Support is pathetic.

Call Sony. Maybe it's because this is an old thread?

This is tech support though, they should be replying at least, even if they don't know how to fix it. 3 months and not 1 reply from support.

Still waiting for a response. Why not offer a volunteer to come to Sony vita development hq and try fix it for you. Clearly Sony have no clue how to fix it. Useless as usual. I wonder if support will be this bad with ps4? Fortunately i wont have to find out.

Still waiting. Will you be getting work experience kids in over the next few weeks to try fix it? Or will they be too busy working on the ps4?

Greetings,

Got same problem too, its easy. The problem is that the internet size the psvita can't handle so between it re loads. There is no other way but I did this: When we open a site while its loading drag the screen down then up. I did this then it won't reload.

There is no way to fix the problem because its Psvita, if you want to surf Internet use your Pc.


Regards.

I have literally no idea what you just said. Sorry!

The Vita tends to reload because either the script of the site tells it to, or because its unable to complete the script. Best thing to do is disable JavaScript if you encounter this. Most sites will still work and will be faster, though some require it.

It still reloads pages with JavaScript disabled. Though it used to stop it happening its worsened somehow. I don't even use the browser much mostly just clicking links from the twitter app. Tried closing all other pages & apps and it doesn't help. Thanks for the help anyway, think I'll just have to get used to it.

A ittle late to the game on this thread but figured I'd give my 2 cents; I had the same issue and for me, it seemed to be a memory issue. As soon as I closed some open apps (specifically the last game I was playing seemed to have the biggest impact) and my problem almost completely went away. Might be worth a try if it is still occurring.

Although there are some JS-based websites which requests a full page reload, I believe some OTHER sites that don't might be suffering the same symptoms from this (bug?);

Just try browsing twitter.com; It won't let you finish reading a tweet and then it will reload the whole page. Twitter does not need a full reload. It just keeps adding new tweets as they come, however, Vita's browser will still reload it.

 

I believe this is something to be addressed for the next update.

I have tried closing all apps & games, deleting history, disabling JavaScript, switching off & on, only opening 1 window and it still does it. So frustrating.
