I tend to travel a lot around Europe, and I don't necessarily think about removing Wifi from my MacBook Air. I also keep dozens of tabs open.
Every single time I take the Thalys, or I get into some Hotel "pay-per-use" Wifi network, my MBA stupidly loads the accesspoints' login-or-register-with-credit-card-number page. While I ignore it, I do lose the pages I had open, since the damn things rewrite the URLs.
is turned into:
which means I don't know what the page was about, since I might have a dozen SO tabs open at the time... all called this :/ .
Is there any way I can block "URL rewriting" on the Mac, unless specifically authorized by me?
