  • Ads reload tabs in the background

    I usually keep my adblocker disabled on phoronix. But sometimes i encounter a very annoying ad and then i enable it for some days or weeks.

    Yesterday i read the newest AMD driver comparison and was very pleased so i disabled the adblocker again.

    Only problem: the ads keep the tabs reloading in the background, which wastes battery on my laptop and distracts because of the reload circle.

    That's with Firefox54

    So for now i enabled the adblocker again.

    Just wanted to share this with your Michael, in case you did not notice something like that.

    Some day i will get Premium, until then its the good old on/off game every few weeks.

    Hmm I didn't make any changes lightonflux so that is unexpected. I didn't see it occur myself. What country are you in? And do you happen to have a trace via firebug or so of what URL(s) are being called for the particular ad(s)?

      From an IP address in Germany. I have an extensive log for one of the tabs. How can i send to to you without publicly posting it?
