I'm using Firefox 14.0.1. When I have multiple tabs open, and I switch from one tab to the next, the tab I select "auto refreshes" the content. This is extremely annoying, especially when I'm writing a blog post, etc. Is there a way to turn this feature off?

Does this happen always? – user3463 Aug 6 '12 at 7:21
Only one thing that I can think of: when you start Firefox and restore previous session Firefox won't load all tabs immediately by default, only when you switch to the tab for the first time. If however you really see a refresh every time - try disabling your extensions. – Wladimir Palant Aug 6 '12 at 8:30
I had something similar with TabMixPlus plugin installed (an older version) and auto-update accidentally turned on. – bytebuster Aug 7 '12 at 16:01
