Web page not updating

This can be frustrating if the text is updating faster than you can read a particular section -- especially if the information is important to your company.

Most browsers allow you to turn off the automatic feature without much difficulty.

Check the box marked "Warn me when websites try to redirect or reload the page." Pages will now not automatically update and instead will ask you to click an on-screen prompt when you are ready for an update.

Click on the extension icon (a white circular arrow in a red hexagon) at the top of the screen when you want to stop a page automatically refreshing.

Every once and a while after I visit a website (such as and NASDAQ.com) when I go back to it old information comes up on the website. The only thing that solves the problem is running defrag, but only temporarily, as soon the issue will reoccur. The fact that defragging has an impact is completely mysterious.I would suggest maybe re-installing your browser because this definitely appears to be a local issue, but not affiliated with the css itself.When I go to a web page that has the days date listed it shows yesterdays date or the last day I was on that web page. I've ran Malwarebytes, Symantec, cleared Temporary Internet Files, Reset Internet Explorer, and uninstalled/Reinstalled IE Issue doesn't occur with Firefox. As we've discussed before, your internet browser - be it Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera or any of the others - typically keeps what's called a 'cache' of recently downloaded files.

The classic example is the image that is the logo at the top of every page of Ask Leo! Your browser will download it once and then keep it in the cache so that on each page that uses the exact same logo the browser doesn't need to download it again, it can simply use what's in the cache.

This is done by doing a force refresh by pressing both control and F5 buttons simultaneously on your keyboard (depending on your browser).
