Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050418 Firefox/1.0.3 For the future, you will find that most regulars at Bugzilla prefer test cases to be attached rather than pasted in. Whilst I haven't checked your case, I believe that what you see is the intended behaviour. What happens if you do a full refresh, shift-ctrl-r? This report is probably not a bug - BY DESIGN.
Reporter can you please attach your testcase in this bug itself.
Yep, disabled state is persisted in session history quite purposefully.
Boris, why is disabled state of form elements persisted? I've read your comments in bug #306616 but you didn't explain the reasoning for this behaviour. Please see bug #468614 for a testcase regarding <select> and bug #502812.
> why is disabled state of form elements persisted? I (or someone else) would have to go back and read the original bugs on that... You're welcome to if you want to, of course. It's about rock bottom low priority for me. I wouldn't be opposed to changing the behavior if someone comes up with a consistent description of what form state restoration _should_ act like. I'm opposed to random back-and-forth tweaking, though.
