Another test case: I guess it's a similar cause. 1) Load any webpage in one tab. 2) Load http://www.mozilla.org/editor/midasdemo/ in the same tab , input something into it. 3) Press "Back" button 4) Press "Forward" button 5) You get saved text in edit area, but you can't edit it now. 6) Press "Reload" button, edit area is empty, and you can input now. Expected result: 5) You get saved text in edit area, and you can edit it.

I filed bug 389274 for the regression I was seeing on branch , thinking it might be a different bug. It turns out it's actually caused by the same patch (bug 332182). I'm going to mark this dependent on bug 389274 for now, as I've CC'd the calvary on that one, and expect a fix to show up there. FWIW, I think the issue you mention in comment 1 is bug 304994 (see bug 382235, which was duped to it).

Isn't this just a duplicate of bug 389274?
Looks like it, marking as such since this seems to be fixed now.
