when defined value of form is rewritten by new value, then RELOAD is hitted, mozilla fails to insert original value to form input. step by step: 1) make simple <FORM> and input for example: <INPUT TYPE="TEXT" NAME="name" VALUE="email@example.com"> 2) access page with form with mozilla 3) rewrite value firstname.lastname@example.org with anything other. do not click submit 4) hit RELOAD button 5) page still contains rewrited value instead of email@example.com it is probably good behave, but when one rewrite original value with nothing (blank) and hits reload, the value is still blank screenshot available...
I don't see this on WinNT
I cannot reproduce with a local file, but can reproduce with HTTP on Win NT (2001-08-26-08). Does not occur with shift+reload, though. This causes dataloss on Bugzilla. If you reload a bug and someone else has changed something like the summary, you'll get still the old summary. If you add a comment, you'll change the summary to the old value too. Probably this is basically the same as bug 81504.
Radha is this in your area, I think we are doing this on purpose.
This is same as 81504 *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 81504 ***
Doesnt look like a duplicate to me... That bug deals with reloading default values into wrong fields, and this one deals with not reloading default values....
This is dupe of 46845 though... *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 46845 ***
