I have a site where I want to prevent the page from reloading using a document.location in a script tag. How can I do this in Firefox?
If you're comfortable using a debugging feature present in Firefox, the watch method works for me:
I'm not sure about the applicability of the warnings about performance, etc. over at MDN, perhaps someone has some insight into these in this situation.
Try the YesScript extention.
Greasemonkey, however can be used to block calls to specific functions -- just overwrite them :). If the above were wrapped into a function call like so:
Then you could just redefine the function in Greasemonkey:
Block inline redirects via Firefox
Essentially Firefox makes it possible to block any DOM manipulation like
A word of warning: Note that your security settings will then block ALL calls from that domain for
Setting up CAPS to block location.href.replace
You do not need Greasemonkey for this task. Firefox comes with a built-in capability for allowing/disallowing access to properties/methods of DOM Objects on a per-site basis. It is called Configurable Security Policies (CAPS) and it is described in 1.
A short guide assuming the simplest case:
Of course, you will have to replace the domain with the one you want to prevent from redirecting your frames.
