Description Tony Chang 2009-02-04 10:55:02 PST
Here's a test case:

In Firefox 3.0 and IE7, I get the dialog asking if I want to resend post data.  In Safari 3.2 and Chrome 2.0 it just loads the page without sending any post data.

Is this a regression?
Comment 3 Tony Chang 2009-02-11 13:35:50 PST
Not that I know of.  I think it's always been broken.

Not fixed.
Post-data fails to resend on JavaScript command "window.location.reload()"

Chrome    17.0     FAIL
Safari     5.1     FAIL
Firefox   10.0     PASS
IE         9.0     PASS

Tony Chang's test case still works:

This bug was found in 2009. We're 2013. Anyone has an idea when this will be fixed?
