In a page with two frames, I change the page displayed on frame B by submitting a form on frame A, and then click on a link on this new page on frame B to go to another page (which will now be on frame B). If I click the Back button now, frame B will show the initial page, instead of the previous one.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Initial page with two frames. Frame A has a form which, when submitted, will change the page on Frame B. Frame B initially displays page 1.html
2. I submit the form on Frame A, so Frame B will now display page 2.html
3. I click on a link on the page on Frame B. This will make Frame B display page 3.html
4. I press the Back button on the browser. 
Actual Results:  
Instead of going back to display page 2.html (which was FF 2 behavior), Frame B now displays page 1.html.

Expected Results:  
Frame B should display page 2.html

If I use the Back option on the right-button mouse menu, the problem does not occur.
