Steps to reproduce:

to reproduce it, you need an imdb account.

1 - so, be logged to your imdb account.
2 - chosse a movie page like http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0490215/
3 - add an evaluation note (the star icon gauge system), so you rate the movie.
4 - Check the great PLUS icon to add the movie to your Watchlist (the + symbol just before the movie tittle)

5 - now, just go to another webpage (on imdb or other domain)
6 - use the previouw back history button to comeboack on your imdb page you just evaluated before.

Actual results:

you can see the rate evaluation (and) the checkbow to watchlist   are disappeared like to never did the job!
but the job is really done, it is a display bug.

if you use F5 key (refresh) the session is good-refresh.

Expected results:

well, the back hisory button should restored the session like it was when you navigate away....
what is strange : if you close the TAB, then reopen the page somewhere in seamonkey, then the session is good !

so , i guess it is just the back-history button which forget to restore something.

There was a time  (many years ago), this bug did not append but i can't remeber when it began.
