Google News Bug Stops Auto Refresh Feature

A Google Groups thread have reports from some users that Google News, the home page, is not auto refreshing with news.

In the past, the page updates the news throughout the day, if you leave the page open. It seems, at least on some browsers, that Google News has stopped auto-refreshing with new news. This requires users to manually refresh the page.

Google News Guide 2 has confirmed the issue and explained they are working on a fix:

Anyone else experiencing similar issues, we've confirmed that there's a bug on our end that's preventing Google News from refreshing. We're working on a fix, and I'll get back to you as soon as there's an update.

Forum discussion at Google Groups.

I HAVE A SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT PROBLEM WITH THE REFRESH OF GOOGLE NEWS. THE DAMN PAGE DOES REFRESH AND THEN RESETS TO THE TOP OF THE PAGE. I COULD BE READING THE INTRO TO AN ARTICLE I MAY CLICK ON AND SUDDENLY I AM ON THE TOP OF THE PAGE. REFRESH IS SUPPOSED TO RETURN TO THE POSITION ON THE PAGE I WAS READING. LOOKING TO GO TO BING BECAUSE OF THIS. VERY FRUSTRATING. ANYBODY KNOW WHERE I CAN GET THE BUG IN THE ARTICLE TO STOP THIS? I LIKE GOOGLE NEWS BUT THIS REFRESH AND RESET IS DRIVING ME CRAZY!!!!
