WinXP 0312 cvs trunk I was adding a cc to a bug and accidentally reloaded right after submission. The submission completed successfully and the reloaded page still had all of the form contents filled in. I think the form should keep the contents only if the submission doesn't happen and reset the form if submission was successful. Steps: Fill in form. Submit form and reload during submission. Expected: Form information retained if reload was before submission. Form information cleared if reload was after submission. Actual: Form information retained and form submitted.
This sounds a lot like Bug 46845, especially if the form was submitting to the same URL that was used to draw the form.
I have this bug also with Firefox 1.03 and 1.5 on Fedora 3. After submitting the form I refresh the page, which reexecutes the CGI program associated with the form. The CGI program has a blank value as the defsault form value, but Mozilla displays the submitted value. IE 6 works fine.
