Pages reload on switch


VapAndrei

Question

Hi,

I own an LG Smart TV (43LK5900PLA) and I seem to have an issue with the browser. If I have more than one tab opened if I switch between them, they refresh / reload. The thing is this doesn't always happen and I haven't been able to figure out why. One thing is for sure - it is really, really, REALLY annoying and makes browsing the internet impossible on websites that have pop-ups. You may ask why. Well, because they usually open a pop-up whenever you make your first click. Pop-ups open in a new tab and the browser automatically switches to it. After closing (or going to the initial website tab) it reloads and .. well.. the pop-up again.

Also, it's impossible to check e-mails and open links too. Same story. You click on a link, a new tab opens and when you go back to the e-mail it reloads and the e-mail is opened no more.

Like I said, this doesn't happen every time. 90% of the times, regardless of what sites I open, of what I have opened when the browser opens.

The LG webOS is up to date and I've tried clearing the history and 'clearing the cache ' in the browser. Nothing works so I'm pretty disappointed.

Thanks in advance.

Meh, well, if 2,5 weeks of waiting didn't work towards getting an answer, at least this has brought me a reply. That counts for something. I think this question was buried on page 2. :P

Thanks for the bump again. So if you're here, can you tell me if there's an official way to ask this? Should I ask at LG Support?

You could try the official LG feedback form which is detailed here: 

However I expect the reason for web pages reloading when selected is that they are removed from system memory when unselected in an effort to manage said memory.  Other desktop browsers have had similar functions in the past to aid memory management.

      I use an IPTV app to watch TV and would like it to start automatically when the TV is switched on. The TV insists switching on with the not working cable TV tuner.
      This is WebOS 5.5

      I don't believe this is currently an option so forgive me if I'm wrong. But it we oukd be great to have an option to switch between bright room and dark room modes at a user specified time. My room is dark at night but fairly bright during the day. So, I'd love to have the option to switch modes at a defined time, much like a blue light filter on a phone. I want bright mode from 7am to 8pm and dark from 8pm to 7am, etc. 
      Aside from that I'd like to be able to turn the remote mouse off completely if desired.

      Hello,
      Actually , i get signal from my nintendo switch on the tv, but i struggle to add configuration with Universal remote menu , the gaming console option is not showing up in the menu.
      i saw a lot of advice using device connector app, but unfortunately it seems this app doesnt exist anymore on most recent firmware.

      I dont understand what im doing wrong.
      edit: i think i m confused with auto device detection & remote configuration.  My nintendo switch was not tagged automatically  as a gaming console nor named properly but i could change it manually. Then for the remote i m pretty sure there is no ir receiver on the switch itself so …

      I have a brand new LG OLEDC8PLA model and have both an input for my aerial and for my Satellite however i cannot seem to find anyway to switch from watching via my aerial, which is Spanish DTV and then switching to my Satellite to watch UK TV 
      I live in Spain hence the two systems.  When I press the home button on the remote the list is at the bottom  and displayed are LG Content Store HDMI3, LiveTV Freesat etc but no button with the aerial option, so the only way I can switch is to go into the main settings menu select Programme Tuning and switch the programme mode from Satellite to Antenna.
      This does not seem a very smart way to be able to switch
      Does anybody know if you can switch easily?

      When I try to go to a TV programme via the remote control voice option, the TV tries to look up the channel on the app I'm on, instead of going straight to the TV channel on the antenna. This used to work without any problems up until a couple of days ago. Any help appreciated.
