How do you get the Firefox Auto-Refresh to hold off when you're entering text?

I'm using Firefox with the Auto-Refresh add-in to read all the SO-family sites, but everytime I'm trying to type a question or answer it refreshes and makes me start over. Is there some setting I can use so that it's more intelligent about it, or do I just have to disable the add-in every time?

"You will have to disable it every time you want to type something up and not lose it from a refresh.

That is unless the project updates their add-on to detect if you're typing in a text field, or if you yourself go in and fix up the source code for that update.

Other than that, type fast or just switch it off when you're on a single question page."
