I have a form that has a multi-select box on it. When I pass a query string I am dynamically selecting options in the select box. However, if I manually select an option, it only highlights that one I selected which is fine. The problem is when I hit the refresh button on the browser it should re-render the page. I have my cache turned off so that is not a problem. When I hit the refresh, only the one I last selected is highlighted. When I view the source, the HTML shows all the ones that should be selected, but the browser is not showing them. It appears as if the browser is not rendering the HTML source that is should. Reproducible: Always
Reporter, this is because of the kind of strange Mozilla .. um, let's call it a "feature", that causes form data entered to be saved in the browser history so that it will still be filled in if the user navigates around and then comes back through their history to the page. But the strange thing is that it also affects plain old refresh; to make the form values reset to those supplied by the server, you should hold the shift key when you press the refresh button. This has nothing whatever to do with the Source View, but rather is a Session History issue. See Bug 46845 for the long and sordid story. If I understand the report, this is a duplicate of that bug (I don't have permission to dupe it, but someone else should).
