Chrome - stay on this page or leave this page pop up? afestsd19 8/26/09 11:00 AM
This doesn't happen all the time, but are random times while using Chrome, while trying to type in the webpage (it's a application for work) I constantly get the pop up for "stay on this page or leave page" after almost every keystroke one it starts.  I can close Chrome and start again and it seems to go away for a while.

I'm having the same problem, any idea what it is?

I am having the same problem in Blogger when I push the "Publish" button.

Clear my browsing history, seemed to help.

Clearing browser history helped me as well. Thx!

Same problem. Clearing all browser data has no effect.

I can reproduce this problem reliably when I visit CBS Radio's web site:
http://player.play.it/player/player.html?id=87&onestat=kmox
My guess is the problem is related to their player, which is the Adobe flash player.
I never encounter this problem on other web pages and never clear browser history.

Is it possible to disable this feature?

I just tried the CBS Radio player, and it appears to have been fixed.

Well, I don't actually think that its a bug -- I think it was an attempt on chrome's behalf to be useful/helpful. I've found it to be quite annoying and would like to shut this "feature" off. On websites like Pandora or Grooveshark this prompt seems to be pretty consistent.

Can a developer help us kill this feature please?
Re: Chrome - stay on this page or leave this page pop up? jshadoww 7/10/10 10:17 PM
If im not mistaken this feature is intended to avoid those confusing pages that have dialog boxes that are something like "Would you like to not not continue to stay on this page? OK or Cancel"

There must be some JavaScript script that can prevent this from occurring, but first I would need to know what is causing it to occur in the first place. I guess I'll have to look at the page's source to see if any clues are present there.

I thought it was a JavaScript causing it.  I usually see it when editing something and I haven't saved it.

This kind of pop up is used by sites to pull back potential customers when they try to leave the page, by giving any new offer or something via pop up. It can also be triggered by setting the time. Its a JavaScript popup. Specifically a confirm box. It can be made something like this.
<!--
<head>
<script type="text/javascript">
function show_confirm()
{
     confirm("Press a button");
}
</script>

<input type="button" onclick="show_confirm()" value="Show confirm box" />
-->
If want to remove that. Look for confirm word in the code of webpage.

Chrome now has an extension called Adblock, which blocks ads. Download here:

Adblock does not block the Leave this page prompts

This is really getting annoying. Everytime I post something on a forum (any forum which uses vBulletin software) I get this error.

Does anyone know how to disable it?

It happens on FireFox as well, not just Chrome.

The "Stay on this page" pop-up is mild mal-ware that is used almost exclusively on porn sites.
The problem is easy to fix.  Just do a clean up of your history, cookies etc.....and stop surfing for porn.

This is a feature to prevent you from leaving the page while you have unsaved content, say if you're editing a form.

However, the site in question might have a bug that leads chrome to believe there is a change that is unsaved, when that is not the case.

Same problem here... I've discovered that if you stumble across a "bad" website, some developer somewhere has found a way to manipulate Chrome in this way to prevent you from leaving the site by generating this popup.  

The only way to get out is to crash out chrome by ending the task in task manager.  

This has been happening to me for some time now- Please Google, disable this security flaw so the rest of us can continue browsing!

My word is this IRRITATING!  How do I disable it?
Re: Chrome - stay on this page or leave this page pop up? kmacdowe 8/28/12 6:57 AM
Same here.  It acts as if there is info in a form you will lose but there is none. I wonder if some interest at Google is benefiting from this obvious hole.  
Re: Chrome - stay on this page or leave this page pop up? redlance7 10/20/12 7:23 PM
My issue has seemed to resolve itself... I suspect an update rolled out that took care of this.  Thanks Google!
