I've wanted to ask if it would be possible to create something like whitelist for pages with "sending Post Data" while refreshing site? I'know that it's not bug and it's for security reasons, but I think possibility for turning off this function on selected sites would make browsing more comfortable.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.For example open
2.Click on "Free user" button, when next page will load, try to refresh.
3.Announcement with sending post data will appear.

This should block bug 160144.

It would be nice to have this list also specify weather to re-POST the same data, or to GET the same URI, as with bug 322984.

I like this idea (see comment as well).

Some thoughts that may be an alternative to the whitelist:
1. Analyse the URL. If it contains "search" (like search.php or /search/) than just auto-submit. Searches are unobstrusive and will return the same results.

2. Add a "dont show this message again for this request (help-link)" to let users OptIn for sites they trust.

3. Make the dialogue non-modal, just show the *cached* view of the page and show a unobstrusive message about reloading. I believe thats what ( is about.
