Pinch to zoom (out) refreshes the page

Description of the issue:

Pinch to zoom (out) refreshes the page. Normally to refresh a page, you pull down until the reloading star appears then you release, my guess is when you pinch to zoom out (and the top of the window goes below the pull down to refresh point) it’s triggering the refresh functionality. This can be very frustrating when filling out forms, especially when the browser snaps zooms to a field on the form, then the user pinches to zoom out and the whole form is reloaded and all data lost. Sometimes it happens with a small zoomed out size like only slightly larger than 100% other times you have you really zoom out far to trigger it.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Load a webpage
  2. Pinch to zoom all the way out until the reloading star appears at the top

Expected result:

Pinching to zoom out shouldn’t trigger a page refresh. (This is how it works on most browsers if not all)
