Some pages are automatically reloaded with the HTML meta refresh tag:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meta_refresh

For example, in <head>:

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="600">

If the page in question is refreshed with an HTML meta refresh tag, it might be possible to change this behaviour in Firefox by setting accessibility.blockautorefresh to true in about:config:

I have not tried this option, but it is documented.

Kind regards,
