When I eg. forget to select a coponent when entering a
bug, after submitting I'm lead to an error page, that does
only give me a warning, and tells me to press Back (which
of course is not called "Back", and isn't
actually "pressed" either). When going back to the
previous page, in IE 6.0 I'm sometimes returned to a blank
bugreport. Everything I typed upto that point, typically
the entire report, is lost.
Since I dislike having to create the same bugreport twice,
I'd like to point out that such situations, which appear
to depend on a combination of circumstances, can be
avoided. This is done by attaching to the error-page a
copy of the original form, but with the values entered so
far already inserted.

Even if this were correct, and the reaction were not insulting, this would still
not be a reason for ignoring it. But in reality, to the best of my knowledge,
nothing in the descripton of forms in the standards states the results ought to
be there if one browses back to it. It would therefore be a bug to rely on such
It happened also to me. I learned from that. What I do is copying the content
of my comments in the scrapbook (? CTRL-A, CTRL-C) and submit the change.
I have no idea where to place such a hint.
