Stop Refresh Navigation Bar

Hi! I am running into an issue with minimal mistakes (GitHub - mmistakes/minimal-mistakes: Jekyll theme for building a personal site, blog, project documentation, or portfolio.). When I use the basic template, every time I click on an item in the navigation bar, the entire page reloads including the navigation bar itself. This is rather annoying as the website turns white every time I use the navigation bar.

Any idea why this happens and how I can resolve it?

All sites do this, this theme just seems to have an annoying white flash. It’s probably something to wait for load before showing content.

also this can be helped a lot by caching the html files. If it is cached it won’t really refresh as it is already there.
