I notice that when I use Orfox (version F-droid latest) that connections do not close when I tell them to by clicking the 'x' in the address bar, but rather continue (i.e. if I enter "website.com" in the address bar and hit enter, I will still be downloading the page at that URL even if I explicitly click the 'x' while the page is loading). Even closing the tab doesn't stop a page from downloading! The aggregate result is a lot of unnecessary data usage and delays in navigating the web due to having to wait for established connections to complete!

Can confirm this behavior with Orfox 1.2 from TGP repository via F-Droid.
