I think you're talking about the new "Don't load tabs until selected" feature.
Just go in Firefox > Options > General, and uncheck "Don't load tabs until selected". Hope it helps :)
Thanks For your reply,
But actually wat happened here is, i opend firefox with my home page and opend somemore tabs, the problem was when i move to already opened tab it get refreshed everytime.
Are you opening the tabs in the background?
You can set the Boolean pref sessionstore.restore_hidden_tabs to true on the about:config page to see if that helps.
I have had this once or twice recently, the latest was after I had updated Firefox. I agreed to the update when I had two Firefox windows open - each with multiple tabs. When Firefox automatically re-opened the windows after the update, I found that each time I switched between tabs they automatically refreshed. I couldn't find a way to stop it, so looked on here. Then started thinking and realised it may be associated with the restart after updating. So I closed Firefox down and, hey presto, when I opened it again it was working normally again! So it definitely looks like a "feature" of the automatic restart after installing an update.

I have the same problem. Whenever I click on a tab it starts to refresh itself and it makes it very time consuming to switch between tabs. Many times I just want to see what the tab is so I can decide if I need to keep it open or not, but then I have to wait 30 seconds for it to refresh. It's very annoying. I am using Firefox for Mac.
Noe: There is no "options" under the Firefox tab and no "Don't load tabs until selected" feature that I can find.
Also I didn't find any sessionrestore preference in the about:config page.
Which Firefox version are you using?
The sessionstore prefs now have a browser.sessionstore prefix.
You can use the search bar at the top of the about:config page to show them.
OK, found it and changed it, it doesn't seem to have done anything.
