Example: So if navigate to a webpage and it loads, then I hit the home button and go to my email, then come back to the browser, the webpage I was previously on is gone and the browser basically reloads and goes to my home page. My old version of CM kept the webpage in memory so I could always pick up where I left off. Same basic thing with Dolphin browser, except it remembers the last page but still has to reload it. Both browsers have default settings.
Other apps, like Google Maps and Gallery, remember where I was last time I exited the app. I can click on them and they come back up from where I left off before. This leads me to believe its related to the browsers only, which doesn't make sense to me.
One other side note... if I close an app, there is a half second refresh of my home screen as if its reloading it again and not saving it in memory. Kinda weird and maybe its related? My older version didn't have these issues. Any ideas I can try?
