Pages accessed via a form using the http POST method may not be revisitable
without the posted form data. It would be a good thing to warn the user when
they are about to bookmark such a page.

Reproducible: Always

Could I vote against this? The reporter seems to be asking for a dialogue.

I think that it is well known that bookmarked pages are not always 
revisitable, and it should be sufficient to give an appropriate message
when that is tried.

Is there a way to give them an appropriate message without at least an
"OK/Cancel" dialog? I can't think of one.

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.
