Unwanted behavior - Browser windows reloading when switching tasks

Description of the issue:
I start doing something in a tab, watching a video, reading an article, etc. Then I go and do something else for a while. When I come back, the browser completely reloads the page - thus losing my position in the article, forcing me to figure out where I was in the video, etc. Extremely irritating and no other browser does this.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Watch a video on youtube. Pause it.
  2. Go do something else for a while.
  3. Return to finish the video and it reloads from the beginning.

Expected result:
The same result from every other browser on the planet: go right back to where I was and continue reading/viewing/etc.
