hi screeninnovations, I was scanning feedback posts before I post a request and saw yours and If I understand your workflow, may I suggest the following.
Basically, open the post-edit in a new tab of your browser (hold ctrl-key) while clicking link on main Post List page (with the search box) and it will open post-edit in new tab. You can edit away and always just switch tabs to main Post List, search for another post and even open that one in another new tab. Then close theses post-edit tabs as you are done when them. sometimes, I have multi-edits open as I reference short-code in other post and have some common elements to posts
This avoids always going 'back' and having WP regen all that content. You can increase your backend efficiency many fold with this technique!!
(different browsers may handle new tabs differently and you can tweak behavior. most support the ctrl-click, but you can also right-click link and select open in new tab)
