Pages reload on switch


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.

      Please, pretty please, make it possibile to listen at the same time through HDMI ARC and some other output that can feed an headphone.
      I have a wireless headphones system that has got both an analog and a digital optical input, yet I am forced to choose headphones or HDMI ARC, but not both.
      There is the option [Wired headphones + Internal speakers], but why should I prefer internal speakers over my 5.1 surround audio system?
      Ideally the audio output menu should be a checklist rather than a list of radio buttons.

      Just bought an LGLED-65UJ630 65INCH TV. Right away I started to get the message "This app will now restart to free up more memory". After searching the internet and forums, I now understand that this problem is huge, it has been going on for years now and it is right across many models of LG TV's.
      I have tried everything to fix this problem. It has the latest firmware. I did the factory reset and that lasted 4 hours before I got the message back. I turn off the TV and leave it for 10 minutes, maybe one hour later I get the message. I delete browsing history, maybe 10 minutes and I get the message..... you get the message.
      As I understand it, the problem is that LG TV's don't have enough internal memory, but they have shipped a ton of their "smart" TV's with this problem.
      My question is, has anybody heard anything from anybody, anywhere about a solution to this problem. I really want to keep this TV, but it is not fit for purpose in this state.

      Hi, 
       
      I was tying to change the settings on our LG TV to enable it for HD channel reception. We found instructions on the net to configure the "area option" in the hidden menu, however, they did not work. So, we thought that we need to change the country group to be able to receive the HD channels. Although we could not change the "country group code" from 20 to an arbitrary number, we change it to 10. After that, we have not been able to change it anymore. It is struck there. I know this is ridiculous, but an LG TV expert who is working in LG customer services told us that I could not change it either and we need to replace the IC. I shocked why with a simple change in one of the TV parameters, everything is got complicated. 
       
      In details, here is the picture of the parameters currently set on the LG TV with the model number of 49LH549V-TD: 
       

       
      Please tell me why I could not set the "country group code" to 20 once again? It is gray meaning that is unchangeable. Any ideas will be appreciated.
       
      Best regards 
      Alizadeh
