Hi @hi hi,
Unfortunately, you cannot disable refresh because:
- Keydown event (or any event) does not apply to the browser UI, which means if the focus is on the address bar, the keydown event would not be listened for. A user is able to hit ENTER key in the address bar.
- Either a prompt or refresh is expected in beforeunload event. And the only way to prevent refresh is a user selecting "Cancel". It always involves user interaction.
It is a by-design behavior in modern browsers. For more information, you can refer to this doc.
