Sorry if I did anything wrong, this is my first time ever reporting a bug.
Confirmed with Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9a8pre) Gecko/2007082004 Minefield/3.0a8pre Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:184.108.40.206pre) Gecko/20070820 BonEcho/220.127.116.11pre The Back button goes back in history. Reload means “reload”. Not sure if anything can be done about that.

Well, at timeout, failed connection, page load error etc alerts, you could add an option to load page from disk cache, if present.
