What happens to the block that is currently being mined for example if the browser refreshes? Could the block be stealed and resolved by another synched computer? C:-)

if you refresh the browser when you are in the middle of mining it , you will probably lose it to another miner - you can read more here: viewtopic.php?f=21&t=44

Hahahahah, that's funny. :)) NOT. Then why is the auto-refresh recommended? C:-)

many reasons:

1. if you use a pc with many cores, the page can sometimes crash - having a 5 min refresh on the page will prevent your pc from 0staying idle and not mining;
2. when you refresh the whole page you will reconect to different nodes and that way you can be shure that you are not in a fork :)

so the refresh of the page will not impact the mining work ?
for example if you are already mining about 2 days, you are not in a fork but you are refreshing the browser you will not loose your 2 days of work ?

not necessarily, after each block the calculations are reset in the block-chain, you are beginning from scratch and have the same probability to mine. You are just redoing the same operations at the same chance. This was mostly used at the start of the main net when the network was not as stable as it is now :)
