From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020311
BuildID:    2002031104

This modem speed test cannot be repeated by pressing "reload" (with or without
shift-key). With earlier versions of Mozilla this worked properly.

(Though repeating test could be done by pressing back-button.)

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to the page
2. Press "56/ISDN" link
3. When loaded the test picture and speed results try 'reload' the test

Actual Results:  Nothing happened (except some colours changed in the result page).

Expected Results:  The test should have started again.

Often (not sure if "always"), RELOAD doesn't work (at all) in FF ( for me lately; for example, load, toggle en-/dis-abling JavaScript; reload; then toggle again; reload.  With JavaScript ENabled, square images should appear in 2nd column of table (bottom part of page); with JavaScript DISabled, just the words "Yahoo images" should appear in that cell.

This is just an EXAMPLE of "reload" not working.  Same occurs even if I use Tools | Clear private data (with "cache" checked) in between.  Have tried both 50 Mb cache (seemingly the default) and ZERO Mb cache, with same results.

I can confirm this bug is also for Firefox 7 Aurora.
Reload doesn't work (it starts to load indefinitely), instead pressing enter in the url bar works.
And page source isn't showed, but can be saved to the disk.

Maybe it's due to the fact that the page is entirely written with javascript, after using document.close().

Test HTML file.

I've managed to reproduce the bug:

And if I directly copy the link from the URL bar: wyciwyg://72/

So maybe it's related also to the cache.
