Default Browser keeps refreshing back to same site

Please Login to Remove!

For some reason my browser keeps refreshing back to the same site. It is a news site that refreshes every couple minutes if you click on it to, but now if I leave the site, whenever the site refreshes it takes me back there from wherever I am. Very annoying. There is no link that I have seen on the site to stop refreshing, and I have looked on the BB to see if there is something there, but cannot find anything that would end this misery.

Hopefully one of you have a very simple solution.

I have seen this type of behavior on desktop computers. While I cannot say for sure that the same fix applies to the BB, this is what you do on a desktop:

The website has changed the home page setting in the browser. In a desktop all you have to do is go into options and change the default home page back to some other site that does not have an auto refresh.

I would check your browser option settings and see if this has occurred.

I would try a battery pull, and also clearing the cache in your browser....
