Target version:-


After leaving a partial filled "New Issue" page by accident, the "Description" text field as well as the combo boxes are restored to there defaults (=> empty). I remember that MoinMoin was presenting a warning box in this case and Bugzilla was able to restore all the fields. This is true with Firefox, Bugzilla, MoinMoin versions which were up-to-date two years ago so it should basically possible to find a solution for the very annoying issue.

Using Firefox 3.6.

This is imho a problem of the browser, not the webservice. (for the record, some browsers warn before closing a tab/window in which inputs have been changed, safari for example, I would suspect chrome too, firefox probably has an add-on)
