Whenever the app leaves the foreground, even for half a second, or if I switch tabs and then return to the original tab, it refreshes and I lose all the data on it. When I need to copy information to fill out a form, or get a code from a 2fa app, I lose all the the progress. This is driving me crazy and making it almost impossible for me to use Firefox as my main browser. I shouldn't have to restart a whole form because I got a phone call and went to the call screen for a second. Battery optimizations are all disabled.

i really need to PERMANENTLY DISABLE the infernal, default auto-refresh session on return to already opened tab. tyranny of the default on Android.

if/when i want to refresh that session, i'll do so MANUALLY.

i want this, not only in alpha, but beta & standard, too. so, it just can't be buried in about:config, which is nanny-state removed from standard. it must be exposed in UI Settings.

i'm not the first or only to request this.

I use Firefox with Video Background Play Fix. It worked properly on my old phone, but doesn't work on my current phone. Playing unexpectedly stops sometimes, usually when I launch another app, but sometimes in my pocket.

I tried to add to about:config (in firefox nigtly) browser.tabs.unloadOnLowMemory = false . There is no such option in current version. I tried to add manually, but it didn't help.

Hi, I can use firefox anymore, because it is not usable. If I switch between programs in Android, example firefox to mBanka, then back to Firefox, tab in Firefox will reload and cannot complete forms! All lines are clear. Next problem: If I reuse tab, I cannot load new page, I must close this tab and use new one.

Hi,

I face this two issues:

1- if you open a photo inside google search, you can't change the browser to Desktop mod

Here is a video: https://share.stars-host.com/firefox/1.mp4


2- I was registering on one of the sites and i leave for second on another app... When i return i found that all the data that i enter to register was removed because firefox refreshing the page 🥲

Here is example video: https://share.stars-host.com/firefox/2.mp4

The second issue need to be fix because i use another browsers when i want to register for Governmental things, for example, that require me to enter the passport number, which is in the photo gallery...

There is a lot of data that you entered and then it is deleted in an instant when you move to another application for a few seconds (there must be a strong temporary storage space

Best regards, Yahya

I'm using firefox nightly for android currently, but had this issue with regular version as well. Every time i switch back to firefox it reloads the webpage, often causing data loss, video disruption, etc.

Example: log in using a code we sent to email. Go to email to get code, come back to firefox, page reloads, have to start over.

Is there a way to turn this feature off? I'm also often in zones wlth poor connection so the reload can be slow to impossible.

I am daily frustrated with this. I would switch browsers to avoid it if i thought there was a better choice.

Every time I open Firefox there is 1 to 10 or web pages loaded that I did not load before closing Firefox. This was happening on Chrome web page so I deleted or uninstalled it. I only use Firefox because any program I use will work with it, without any problems. How do I stop this from happening? These appear to be spam sites. Thank you Timothy

Cheers geeks,

Recently, this new, exceptionally annoying tab auto-refresh feature on Firefox came to my attention that I hadn't experienced two or three years ago. I've been using Firefox mobile since 2015.

Whenever I fill out a form and switch to another tab or app, the website refreshes, causing me to lose all my progress.

Whose marvelous idea was this, and what on earth is the bloody purpose behind it?

Unfortunately, I haven't found any workaround to disable it so far. The about:config doesn't work on mobile.

I've read something about RAM resource management, but seriously, does this single tab really require management when most devices have 8 - 16 GB RAM these days?

Please help, I'm desperate for a solution!

Is there any way from stopping firefox mobile from refreshing itself whenever I go to different app to respond someone's message or copy some info?

I had turned off/on any settings regarding battery usage for this app and it didn't help. I use redmi note 12 and I had same problem on my previous phone redmi 8. I also use Firefox app on iPad air 4 and don't have such problems.

It's literally the only thing that bugs me regarding Firefox, I have no other complaints just this foreced refresh.
