Edge tabs constantly reloading after switching

If I switch tabs in Microsoft Edge, it refreshes the tab automatically when switching. Is there a way to turn this off? I can't have Outlook Web Access open in a tab without it generating a cookie conflict due to the constant refreshing. I'm not sure if I'm missing something, but it's pretty frustrating. Any ideas how to fix?

Hi,

Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.

I suggest you clear the Clear browsing data option of Microsoft Edge and check if you face the issue. To do so perform the steps below.

  1. Click on the more actions icon next to the feedback icon present on top right corner of the Project Spartan homepage.
  2. Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
  3. Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files and click on Clear.

If still he issue persists then I suggest you to provide us a feedback using the feedback app so that we can resolve the issue further.

Hope this information was helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.

Thank you for your assistance John. 

I did exactly what you instructed, restarted the browser and the same issue persists. I just sent feedback through the Edge browser, so hopefully someone takes a look at the issue.

Maybe it'll be fixed with the release next week.  Loving everything else about Edge so far!

Danielle,

First, I am sorry you are running into an issue with Microsoft Edge and Outlook Web Access.

Second, a few clarifying questions to better understand the issue. 

  1.  Type of machine? Processor and RAM?
  2. When you say a cookie conflict, what is specifically occurring? Details on the actual conflict would be helpful. For instance, are you encountering a login error? Are you getting an error message? Any specifics would help.
  3. When you see a "refresh" on the tab, does this occur with all sites or just with OWA? Assuming it is happening on all sites, are you experiencing this "cookie conflict" with other sites? Which ones?

Thanks!

We need to stop this constant refresh.  I have a number of pages that are portals and dashboard to my systems and switching tabs ALWAYS does a page refresh meaning I completely loose my place.   This is a major fault with Edge and I have to use Chrome until this is fixed.

I can't believe it - you can't copy/paste between tabs.  Seriously Microsoft are you trying to be difficult?

When uploading photo albums on Facebook I have to stay on the upload tab (wasting time that could be spent doing something productive in another tab), because if I switch tabs then the upload stops leaving an incomplete album. I'd like to see this issue addressed and fixed.

It was just getting more and more bizzare, new tabs opening but the URL not coming through, etc.  Decided to do a reboot and what do you know - normal again.  Will have to keep an eye on this, I suspect there is something not quite right somewhere

I am also started facing this Tab reload issue all of a sudden. How can Microsoft still have this commonly used feature failing, even after Windows 10 final release.

YES! It's infuriating. Sometimes I'll be posting something and want to switch to another tab, eg to copy and paste something from Gmail. I come back to my first tab, the page has refreshed and everything I typed has gone. Or if I'm using webmail I can't switch tabs while files are uploading to my message - I lost everything. I've had to go back to Firefox.

I have same problem with Chrome 46 from this morning.

So now I found that this is now by design when device is out of memory.

Maybe the same has Edge.
