Do these 'new' refresh or crawl gimmicks have a name? I can see a 
press to have an on-off switch for these like we do built-in for 
pop-ups, cookies, and js, and through plug-ins for ads and flash.

Newspapers are on a timer for auto refresh. It just struck me that 
they may have been culprits for the ff memory leakage. So far that 
seems to be fixed, or at least reduced, in FF4.
