This is an annoying problem that only started recently and is interfering with my email workflow.

 

We have Microsoft 365 and I use the online Outlook app extensively.  I will commonly have multiple tabs open with different emails visible and my calendar open in a separate tab.  I have been doing this for more than a year without any issues and enjoy the ability to have more than one view of my email and calendar.  Recently, a new behavior started where all my Outlook tabs will spontaneously auto-refresh which destroys my views and resets everything back to a view of the inbox.  This is a terrible inconvenience since now I have multiple tabs that had the exact items I wanted on them all showing the same default view.

 

How can I stop this!  I don't think any of the other tabs in the browser (normally Chrome) auto-refresh when this happens.  Is this a setting the admins of the tenant may have changed?  Is anyone else experiencing this? Any ideas of what is causing this?
