User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; fr; rv:1.9.0.1) Gecko/2008070208 Firefox/3.0.1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; fr; rv:1.9.0.1) Gecko/2008070208 Firefox/3.0.1

When I chose to reorder a tab, but later change my mind (and therefore put it back at the same location), that tab get reloaded, and all the data I entered in the forms on that page is lost forever.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open several tabs
2. Drag a a tab
3. Drop it back in its original place
Actual Results:  
The page get reloaded, and all the form data is lost!

Expected Results:  
No reload, just do nothing.

Or at least, if it is wanted by most users to reload the page, show a warning that the form data will be lost by this operation. (when I want to reload, I use ctrl+r, F5, the refresh button, right-click refresh, but NOT this tab thing!)

Dinesh: Make sure that you don't accidentally drop the tab on the address bar or the content area. Both of these will reload your tab instead of moving it. If that was your issue, please close this bug as WORKSFORME.
