When I start my mobile browser it is usually to browse some other place than what it currently shows, but both firefox and the default browser insist on reloading what random page they hold before I'm able to proceed.
Is there any way to avoid the reload in these browsers?
The answer from NDgeek works as a workaround for the default browser, but not for Firefox as it requires at least one tab to exist.
After poking around a bit with the two applications, a similar workaround occurred to me, which is to point the active tab to a light-weight page before exiting, e.g.
about:home, now when the browser is activated it is available quicker.
I'll use the above workaround but as it requires extra work from me before I move away from the browser, I would prefer a more automatic solution.
