Ok so it isn't only me... I'll look into the other browser. Thanks.
Happens to me all the time and bugs the heck out of me. Glad to see I'm not alone.
I have had this issue for some time. On stock 2.01 and even on some 2.01 modded Roms I didn't have the issue. I can't remember when, exactly, but this started a while back - before the official 2.1 release.
When I notice it most is when I have multiple "windows" open in my browser and wait some time before viewing them.
I was having the same prob, so I used Titanium Backup to freeze one program at a time. In my case it was the app Audio Manager doing it.
Wait, I take it back, arrrgh...
Exactly the same thing happening to me and it's driving me mad! I'm using an LG GT540 with android 1.6 and Dolphin. I use Task Manager but Dolphin is ignored.
Interestingly, if I terminate Task Manager the auto refreshing appears to stop.
So what is Task Manager "killing" that causes Dolphin to refresh when I switch back to it from another app or from the home screen? Or am I barking up the wrong tree?
Happens to me all the time (Droid 1 2.2). A few months ago I spent some time looking into it and it is said to be related to how the phone manages memory. I don't understand why a refresh would be necessary, though. It may be possible to tweak a rooted phone using autokiller (not a task killer! a mem. mgt. tweaker) adjusted to conservative settings. I haven't tested this out, though (I like aggressive memory mgt. Improves the snappiness).
Also, another thing that really bugs me about the browser is how a refresh (or backing up a page) loses your place on the page. This combined with the occasional refresh issue above is a real hassle. Especially using google reader.
Try this to stop refreshing apps.
1. Go into 'Settings'
2. Then into 'Developer options'
3. Then scroll to the last three under 'APPS' and make sure 'Don't keep activities' is unchecked.
