Page Refresh?

7 posts in this topic

Santa was kind enough to bring me a new Sony Vaio computer for Christmas.

How come it "refreshes" each time I hit the "back" button while scrolling thru the forums? It still works great, but it is kind of nice having the little light bulb telling you if you have read that post or not. If the page refreshes that often, the little light bulb is worthless.

Anyone else have this problem?
Is it in my settings?

My old computer never did this...

Try this? Right click your mouse and box pops up and click the option Open in new Window and all the forums will stay the same.They won't change till you refresh the page.

If I right click, there is no option "Open" in there.
I run Windows XP with Internet Explorer 6.

XP must be different than windows 98? Check your help and see what that says about opening pages? The way I do it works great for me!
Sorry I tried frown.gif

I have XP also and I think I know what Fish Toys is trying to say b/c I do it on mine all the time.

Heres what you have to do. For ex. before you left click on "Equipment-Expert Information", hit the right button on your mouse. (To make this work make sure you right click ON the "Equipment-Expert Information") When you right click you will see this box of options, the second one down from the top should say "open in new window" click that and it will bring up the forum you just clicked on and when you are done reading just exit out of that window you just opened. And Forum Home Page should still be there in the original window.

In easy words just - right click, select "open in new window" and walla!

That's what I was saying but in not enough words. Hope it works for skeets or anybody else with the same problem. The only thing watch when you get back to the main forum because they will all stay with the light on.

    • For many years my dad, uncles, etc have been heading to the Leech Lake area every spring and fall to fish for walleyes. There are usually 8-10 guys that go. Many of them are from the Barron, Wisconsin area. Since I've never really fished in Wisconsin, thought it might be fun to head to there one of these trips. Have always heard the Hayward area is pristine. Does anyone have a favorite lake, or possibly a favorite resort in the area I should add to the list when doing some research?  Walleyes are thing these guys are after.   I know there is a Wisconsin form, but it seems kind of quiet over there, so I'm hoping to get some opinions here.    
    • Well except for the owner. He's kinda ancient!!   We did the same thing with the frig to Dave on the first camper we had.

    • I've done a few things to the old camper in the last few weeks.   First I replaced the old crank jack with a new electric jack.     Then the cooling unit on my fridge went out so I ended up just replacing the 6 cu. ft 2 way fridge with a 9.9 cu. ft. residential electric only fridge.   Next order of business is new tires. Blew one out on the way to Zumbro Falls this weekend    Pretty soon everything on this camper will be brand new! 
    •   Well I never!!!    Caught one that nice!
    •   Del be fightin' with himself again. He likes that. 
    • I now boys fight Nice!!
    • Its a great house. Yep its heavy, yep the cover is bulky compared to a single layer, yep I'd buy it again. You can always pull down a zipper or 2 (front and back doors) if you get hot. For what its worth I switched from a Clam Yukon TC (normal sides with a insulated top) both are a similar size. On below zero days in the clam I would have to use a big buddy. In the otter I use a buddy and rarely turn it on high.
    • Ya, right. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA   From a car audio site....MOTORHEADS talkin'...   FlyinMiata9,
      A shorter antenna mast captures a smaller portion of a radio broadcast station's travelling radio wave. That results in reduced radio reception capability. The reduced radio reception capability may never be noticed if only listening to nearby radio broadcast stations in the city. 

      There's no overall magic of one short antenna over another. There are some that include a signal amplifier. They can at times enhance more distant radio receptions, but usually degrade other radio reception situations, often those where there are multiple strong radio signals in the reception area.

      The overall disadvantages of antenna amplifiers for car antennas tend to be far more predominant than advantages. There are some radio signal amplifiers for car antennas that automatically switch "off" when operated in a strong signal area. That can assist clearly listening to the nearby strong radio stations, but reduce the prospect of listening to any some distance away.

      There's always a prospect of the antenna you installed being defective, or not installed properly well mounted to the car's fender for a good electrical radio reception ground plane. Check to make sure the in-line Motorola connector set is fully pushed-in inserted together. 

      A simple way to test the antenna line and system is to tune in a weak AM radio station in the daytime and then grab hold of the antenna mast to detect stronger and louder reception of that weak AM radio station. Your conductive body mass adds some to the short antenna's reception capability. There may also be an initial "thump" sound as the car's radio makes an automatic adjustment of its radio reception sensitivity. If there's no dramatic change in weak AM radio reception, look for an open or shorted electrical problem. Best bet is a full length proper antenna.
