Prevent pages from automatically reloading or refreshing in opera GX

  • Friends forgive my bad English but I am in the process of migrating from Chrome to Opera and I see that every time I leave a page open for a certain time, when I return to it it reloads or refreshes, that is annoying. Will there be any way to prevent pages from automatically reloading or refreshing in opera GX? In Chrome it is configured by the flags option, but in Opera I don't get a similar option. Please help

  • I work with customer service. I leave the Opera GX browser open for 8 hours straight with several tabs on my social networks.

    Objective: I leave the tabs open, so when a customer chat me I get the notification instantly to answer my customer quickly.
    What really happens: If I stay for about 30 minutes outside that tab it is no longer loaded. When I click on the tab after a while it loads, so it is inactive if I don't have it open.

    How do I solve this? I want Opera not to inactivate the tabs even if the tab is not open after a long period of time.
    I’ve already turned off energy saving mode and everything,
    and I can't solve this.

  • @vicqueiroz Not possible for now. In Opera developer 75 there is a setting to disable that Chromium feature.
