How do I stop Firefox mobile from refreshing every time I leave the app and come back? This wouldn't be such a big issue expect for the fact that I use bitwarden as my password manager. So every time I want to enter my password bitwarden leaves Firefox so I can unlock my vault. Then when I re-enter Firefox Bitwarden is unable to fill in the username and password cause the page is refreshing. Sometimes it even takes me out of the password page because the login screen for the site is a pop-up. Not a separate window.

This also becomes super annoying when filling out any forms and I need to grab info from another app cause a lot of time on form pages when you refresh the page the form gets cleared. It's at it's worst if I have to leave Firefox to copy and paste multiple items because then I copy one item, re enter Firefox paste, leave Firefox to copy the next item, re enter Firefox and the thing I pasted before is gone because the page refreshed! STOP REFRESHING THE PAGE EVERY TIME I LEAVE AND RENTER THE APP!!! It doesn't matter if I leave for mear seconds or used the recent app section to quickly switch between Firefox and another app.

I am on a Samsung Galaxy S20 FE.

It's being investigated, but it looks like quite big and widespread problem. You can follow the discussion here.

As a workaround, try to use the Firefox internal password manager.
