I modified a bug while Bugzilla was down.  Clicking "try again" took me to
http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/process_bug.cgi, but it said "You apparently didn't
choose any bugs to modify."

I did not try to reproduce.

I seem to run into this problem very frequently when I play
kingdomofloathing.com.  I reproduce it every day.

biesi was thinking using location.reload() might work, but it seems to cause
other problems (and I'm still not sure it actually resend form POSTs).

Attached patch use location.reload() (obsolete) — Splinter Review
this works for me. this patch includes the change from a link to a button for
"Try Again" (from bug 280190); I can undo that change if desired.

use location.reload()

Hmm...	location.reload works because we don't stick the error page URI in
session history, I assume?  Document that here?

And leave the <p> around the <input>, please.

r+sr=bzbarsky with that.
