Does anybody else's iPad constantly refresh pages? City-Data doesn't do it too bad, but some other forums are almost impossible to look at, just as I start reading it says "an error occurred so this page was reloaded", and it does it over and over. I totally wiped it out yesterday back to factory specs, and it's still doing it. Turning JavaScript off helps, but some pages wont work without it. It's not overloaded because I hardly have any apps on it.

I'm about done with Apple if I can't fix this. I'm so tempted to order a Samsung Tab 10.5

Yep, same here. It's getting to be time to upgrade it. It has worked well for so long of a time, but its time is up.

I did install the Weblock app last night and it seems to be an improvement so far.

Is it a 16gb? I upgraded to a 64gb and it is better than the older models.

Likely. So far the Weblock app seems to have improved it though, very few page reloads now. Only thing is it blocks all ad.doubleclick addresses, which are sometimes encountered with Google shopping, not a big deal though. Those annoying commercials at the beginning of YouTube videos are also blocked, its just a black screen until your chosen video starts.

That would be nice. In all the years of YouTube commercials there is one that I will watch to the end. About the battle ship blowing up the sniper tower. It makes me laugh.

When I was using Windows on a laptop and Firefox I was using Adblock to do the exact thing you're doing.
