I think it could be interesting to add a setting allowing not to reload tabs everytime you switch between them in firefox ios.
Thanks for submitting an idea to the Mozilla Connect community! Your idea is now open to votes (aka kudos) and comments.
I find it quite annoying personally. Whenever I open multiple tabs on my iPad, all but the active one close within like an hour or two, and Firefox fully reloads them when I switch back to one of those tabs, losing their state (e.g. video watch progress on YouTube).
