I've poked around and found some sense of what I can do to prevent the issue, but not for my situation.
I have a page with a form on it as well as links to some child pop-up windows. Opening one of the child pop-ups takes you to an edit form that when submited displays a "Thank you, this page will close in 5 seconds" and then refreshes the Parent window via this function in the child popup
The problem arises when the user has submited some changes on the parent form first. Then goes to a child popup, submits the edit form, then the child refreshes the parent and the "Do you want to repost Retry/ignore" window pops up for the parent. Any ideas how I can make the parent not repost when I refresh it from the child? I'm working with asp pages that also have some JS in it.
