This only happens on mobile. Whenever I leave the Firefox app (without closing) and reopen it, the website reloads and everything I had done beforehand is lost. This makes it impossible to use Firefox along with other apps at the same time. The same issue also occurs when I have to open another app (from Firefox) to upload a file; after selecting an image to upload, I'm back to Firefox, but the website reloads and forgets I was uploading something.

TLDR; websites reload upon leaving Firefox, without closing the application

This is something that our developers are aware of and are looking into. You can follow progress on this and add comments at:

This behavior interferes with using Password Management too. For me it's on every platform. Tabs seem to be more difficult to close depending on the platform and when the app is brought forward, not only will the last tap reload all the others in line are too. Talk about major lag!

Also the Tabs when newly addressed and loading don't come to the front.
