Today i came in after some months away, when browsing http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?act=idx to pick a section I found it would refresh again, and again, and again, non stop. Thankfully i have noscript, which was not needed for this site as it used to work fine in the past, but today i had to activate it to stop this madness.

But perhaps other users are not as knowledgeable and are unable to use the forums. Someone should please check this.

It's a long shot, but as it's easily simply asked: have you updated your user-agent? There were user-agent changes in version 17 that broke some sites. I'm using Firefox 17 also and don't notice these problems, but I've also updated my user-agent.

No problems here with Firefox 17.01 with scripts enabled for this site and using the default user agent.

17.0.1 reverts the user-agent change.

This is my current user agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:17.0) Gecko/17.0 Firefox/17.0

If i re-enable scripts, it keeps refreshing like crazy (It's also possible to stop it with ESC). Maybe you have some code expecting something to occur, and when it doesn't it forces a reload?

I run Firefox nightly and have had this issue for months. I asked about it on the HA IRC but everyone else said it wasn't happening for them. I just hit esc reflexively after loading the main page.
