Description of the issue:
If I have multiple tabs open and am off one for several minutes the page automatically is refreshed. This has causes a couple issues, but the main annoyances this causes is if I am using the website for gaming and go off of it for a little bit my whole game (which sometimes takes several minutes) has to be re-loaded. Another instance is when watching Youtube, if I pause a video and exit it for a little bit, when I return to the page, it gets reloaded and restarts the video, so if I don’t check where I left off in the video, I am lost. It has lost me what feels like hours in rewatching videos. If there is anyway to turn this feature off it would be great!

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Open several tabs
  2. Leave one for a couple minutes
  3. Open tab you left for several minutes

Expected result:

Tab you open after being left should be reloaded or refreshed when entered
