User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4 When an html page with a form is refreshed, if the data in that form is changed (like the default selection in a drop down box that hasn't been changed), those form fields aren't updated with the new default value. it would make sense not to change *dirty* fields (fields that have been modified), but unchanged fields should respect the new default value if its different when the page is refreshed. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create an HTML document with a form with a drop down box and no default selection 2. Load the page in Firefox 3. Change the default selection in your HTML text file 4. refrseh the page in Firefox Actual Results: The selected item will remain as whatever was previously selected in Firefox, even if that field hadn't been modified by the user. The html correctly reflects the new default form value. Expected Results: The "selected" field should appear as selected in the option dropdown.
This is as designed. Use Shift+Reload if you want form values reset. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 46845 ***
