I can be typing an e-mail in tab two, and chatting in tab one, as an example. While typing my e-mail in tab two, all of a sudden the typing freezes. The screen doesn't freeze, I just hit the keys and nothing happens. The field stops accepting typing! I have to switch to a different tab and back again before I can resume typing. Usually a page refresh on a different tab is what triggers this. If someone is typing a chat message to me on tab one and I am writing an e-mail on tab two, my typing on tab two will freeze when a chat message appears on tab one. Also, when viewing tab two, my tabs will automatically switch to a tab that has a refresh happening. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open two or more tabs. 2. Type on one tab while another tab's webpage refreshes. 3. The typing I am doing on whichever tab will freeze with this refresh on another tab. Actual Results: I can't have multiple tabs open unless I want to deal with my typing freezing all the time. Expected Results: I should be able to type on one tab's page without it stopping or freezing simply because another active tab refreshes.
I think this is a dupe of bug 53948.
