(Keywords: dataloss, meta)

This tracks the bugs where Session Restore doesn't manage to restore a page's content exactly as it was when its state was saved. Many of dependent bugs are dataloss.

The specific solution of storing bfcache of a page (bug 387598) was shot down for performance reasons, so we need to improve the existing approach of saving the most important data about the page to cover more common cases.
Depends on: 387598
Patches are welcome for all of the unowned bugs.

this hasn't been maintained for almost 5 years.  So any objections to retiring this bug report?
(personally I don't see the need for it, unless it's scope is changed for a specific purpose to  manage a set of bugs much smaller than the large universe of "page doesn't properly restore")

no feedback, so => invalid

If someone wants to update it for some productive purpose feel free to do so.
