When I try to load a page in Google Chrome without Wi-Fi and then turn on Wi-Fi the page refreshes automatically.

I do not want this because I don't have time to turn on a VPN before the page loads.

How do I prevent this?

This is not tab discarding. Sorry to anyone who misunderstood the question.

  • I believe it only does this for the first page yes and not all the tabs? – William Apr 17 '17 at 21:53

Per this answer, it seems like setting Chrome's "Offline Auto-Reload Mode" flag to "disabled" should do what you want?

It is actually Tab Discarding...

You can take a look here chrome://discards/

If you want to disable then go to chrome://flags, and disable this flag: #automatic-tab-discarding

  • No, it is not tab discarding. What will happen is that I will visit a webpage without internet access, and Chrome will display a page saying "You are offline" or whatever. Then when your internet comes back up, Chrome will automatically refresh the page – LoganDark Apr 17 '17 at 21:38

Based on your reply to my first answer I think I have a little more clarity, so you may want to do both.

If you want to disable then go to chrome://flags, and disable this flag: #enable-offline-auto-reload
