After POSTing to a URL, I cannot use View Page Source to get at the HTML that was generated as a result of my POST request. Mozilla (milestone release 0.9.9, at least) appears to simply request the page again and show me *that* source. steps to reproduce: 1. go <a href="http://slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=29597&cid=0&pid=0&startat=&threshold=1&mode=thread&commentsort=0&op=Reply">here</a> (if that link doesn't work, just try replying to a slashdot.org post) 2. enter the text 'SHOULD SHOW UP IN SOURCE' in the multiline textarea input field titled 'Comment:'. 3. click 'Preview' button. 4. click View -> Page Source (CTRL+U) 5. words 'SHOULD SHOW UP IN SOURCE' do not appear in source. Both Netscape Navigator 4.78 and MSIE 6.0 display the source of the current page as I would expect (these same steps end with the words 'SHOULD SHOW UP IN SOURCE' appearing in the source). If it is reasonable, I would recommend that the current page source is shown instead of a freshly requested page.
Sorry, I should probably add: User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020311 Build ID: 2002031115

> see QA/Frequently reported Bugs ... thank you, I looked over this page. I'll do more research before reporting bugs in the future. Still, it makes me feel better that I'm not the only one who wishes some action on this component.
