Do not generate Thumbnails for pages requested with POST-method


(Firefox :: Tabbed Browser, defect)

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:14.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/14.0.1
Build ID: 20120713134347

Steps to reproduce:

- Pin a Page with a form (which points to the same page) to the newtab page
- got a nice thumbnail of the page
- visited the page
- used the form
- closed the page
- opened a new tab

Actual results:

- the screenshot is now from the result page after submitting the form
- clicking gets me of course to the non-result Version of the page, which looks as the first thumbnail looked like

Expected results:

- from pages which were requested with the POST method, no new thumbnail should be made
- when opening the newtab-page, i should still see the GET-request thumbnail
prominent example:
Use the submit form of a bugtracker in the newtab-page

what should happen:
- you see always the new-bug form in the thumbnail

what actually happens:
- you always see the page of the last bug you opened, even when the bug-page itself has another url, because after submitting the form you were redirected to the new page.
- Clicking takes you to the form, not to the bug, of course
