The current answer in Gecko seems to be "maybe, possibly depending on 
what else is going on".  In particular, it may depend on whether the 
document got placed in back/forward cache, the exact Gecko version 
(there are some patches that may inadvertently affect this), etc.  See 
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=293175 for more information 
on part of the issue...

I would say that ideally the answer here would be "no".
