Please bring back the ability to disable pull up refresh. So many times I have lost form data due to scrolling too fast or pinching to zoom. It’s so frustrating. Pull to refresh is great, but please give me the option.

this is, as far as I can tell, still not resolved for iOS users.

Why is there not an option to disable pull to refresh on iOS like there is on Android? Its broken behavior while pinching to zoom has caused me constant irritation.

Same here. I followed the steps in @jmahon ’s post but it seems it only applies to the Android version.

I never intentionally use pull to refresh personally. However it happens VERY often accidentally when zooming out, which makes no sense to me. Zooming out and refreshing should be completely separate actions in my opinion. 

In any case, and especially since the Android version has it, please also provider a way to disable this feature on iOS.

It’s really bad ux. I lost posts on Xwitter and forums because of this

On Firefox for iOS this function makes reading if PDFs within the browser impossible.

 Every swipe in the wrong direct causes a reset to the start and with that a loss of focus, making the software useless for longer documents.

How do you disable this on iOS? I can't find the option. I hate Pull to Refresh. It keeps triggering when I don't mean to refresh the page.

After repeated data loss in an editor, I finally figured out that this is what’s causing the problem. I was blaming the website until I realized that swiping down was triggering it, which doesn’t seem fair to them. Alternative fix - isn’t there some flag you could check that would tell you when user is in the middle of editing?
