Is there a way to stop the user from refreshing the page.
1) disable F5
2) stop refresh using context menu

The cancelBubble property works for disabling the opening of a new window using "CtrlKey + N".

Please do throw some light on this property too ( when it works and when it doesn't )

Check this. It prevent the user from right click and also prevents refresh by F5. Still the user has the option of
refreshing the page from main menu. So you need to open a new window without any of these menus.

Hope this helps !!!!

<html>
<head>
<script language="JavaScript1.2">
function keyPressed(evt) {
   var F5 = 116;
   if(document.layers) {
             if (evt.which == F5) {
              return false;
           }
   }else if(document.all){
          if (event.keyCode == F5) {
               event.keyCode = 0;
                window.event.returnValue = false;
             }
   }
}

function click(e) {
     if (document.all) {
          if (event.button == 2) {
               alert("Sorry, that function is disabled");
               return false;
          }
     }
     if (document.layers) {
          if (e.which == 3) {
               alert("Sorry, that function is disabled");
               return false;
          }
     }
}

if(document.layers){
     window.captureEvents (Event.KEYDOWN);
     document.captureEvents(Event.MOUSEDOWN);
     window.onkeydown=keyPressed;
     window.onmousedown=click;
}else{
     document.onkeydown=keyPressed;
     document.onmousedown=click;
}
</script>

The Ultimate Checklist to Optimize Your Website

Websites are getting bigger and complicated by the day. Video, images, custom fonts are all great for showcasing your product/service. But the price to pay in terms of reduced page load times and ultimately, decreased sales, can lead to some difficult decisions about what to cut.

Sorry ... I forgot to test in Netscape. This code should work.

<html>
<head>
<script language="JavaScript1.2">
function keyPressed(evt) {
   var F5 = 116;
   if(document.layers) {
             if (evt.which == F5) {
              return false;
           }
   }else if(document.all){
          if (event.keyCode == F5) {
               event.keyCode = 0;
                window.event.returnValue = false;
             }
   }
}

function click(e) {
     if (document.all) {
          if (event.button == 2) {
               alert("Sorry, that function is disabled");
               return false;
          }
     }
     if (document.layers) {
          if (e.which == 3) {
               alert("Sorry, that function is disabled");
               return false;
          }
     }
}

if(document.layers){
     document.captureEvents(Event.MOUSEDOWN);
     document.captureEvents (Event.KEYDOWN);
}
document.onkeydown=keyPressed;
document.onmousedown=click;
</script>
</head>
