    Im with Sky broadband and I often get internet cutouts recently. Ive contacted them about it and they are on it apparently.

    Thing is whenever the internet cuts out and cant load a page there is the defualt sky page which it defaults to on an error.

    The problem is this stupid page then stays jammed for whatever page I was using even once internet comes back on.
    The only way Ive found to get rid of it and load the desired page is to close my whole session down in firefox and open a new one.

    This is a pain when I have tons of browsers open.

    How do I stop this page from locking down whatever page it was loading when the connection error occured?

    It could possibly be something to do with Sky and their DNS settings. If you get into the router, change the DNS servers to something else - Googles for example are 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4

    Cheers

    You could try changing your PC's DNS settings. If they are currently set to automatic try changing them to the openDNS ones

    • 208.67.222.222
    • 208.67.220.220

    edit: fatboy beat me to it lol

    Try CTRL+F5 or CTRL+Refresh. It will force a full refresh without having to start a whole new session.
