Would be nice for bugzilla reports that are half filled, then you realize you need to restart Fx to finish. Or entries into blogs, forums, email, whatever that you don't want to do in one sitting but are worried Fx might crash while gone. This is consistent with saving the current page as a PDF using any virtual PDF printer.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Manipulate standard user inputs on any page
2. Save Page or frame
3. Open the saved file.
Actual Results:  
Page appears as it was originally loaded by Fx (ie, according to its original source code.

Expected Results:  
Page is saved and displayed the way it looked at the time it was saved.

Yes, I know it's too late for inclusion into Fx3.0. Only recommended for standard inputs: forms, checkboxes, radioboxes, comboboxes, etc since they're simple. Trying this for AJAX or the DOM would be a huge undertaking. Could be by taking the original code, find the current state of each input, change the saved version of the code so that the default data of the input is that current state. Eg, if the current selection in combobox "Severity" is "Enhancement", change the default state from "Critical" to "Enhancement."
This is a mass search for bugs that are in the Firefox General component, are
UNCO, and have not been changed for 800 days and have an unspecified version. 

Reporter, can you please update to Firefox 3.6.10, create a fresh profile,
http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/managing+profiles, and test again. If you
still see the bug, please update this bug. If the issue is gone, please set the
resolution to RESOLVED > WORKSFORME.
