Question about the New posts thing

I have a strong dislike for ending up on New posts. I don't mind the idea of a auto-reloading page like that, but I don't like it and don't want to use it. Previously, I've been regularly bumped to that page while sitting on the front page of the Jazz discussion forum, but lately I have been inelegantly moved to New posts when viewing a thread. I find this pretty annoying. Is this something I can disable somehow?

Actually, it's getting worse. I was now sent to New posts before I managed to post this message, but the message was preserved when I pushed "back".
This is in a browser, btw.

I'm not sure what it is you're describing. I've never experienced anything like that.

You say you're just like sitting on, say, the home screen and without any input from you it loads a "new post" and now you're in that thread looking at said new post?

Yeah. Can’t say I’ve ever seen this and it isn’t a feature we would want. Anyone else?

does it happen on a different device?

how long do you have to sit there idle on the list of threads?

Damn, didn't see you guys had responded, thought I'd get a notification.
Anyway, I get automatically moved from the Jazz forum to the New Posts thing (not any particular new thread, but the New Posts page). Happens quite regularly, can't seem to figure out why or when.
I only read on firefox (on linux) on the desktop, so can't say if it happens elsewhere.

Thanks. I’ll have to try Firefox on a desktop. Can’t say I have Linux sitting around but ... :)

... wondering if it’s related to the ad refresh that happens around 45-60 seconds after page load? I’ll try to reproduce.

You're hardcore!
