When the F5 refresh button is pressed Amaya clears
all form elements or resets if that was in the html.
This can be a problem when filling in a survey and hitting
some rendering garbage that needs redisplay... 
The mozilla / FireFox browser holds any user input
i think this is an area of html recommendation vagueness
but usability leans one to the mozilla way ... 
easy test is on my /~ve3ll homepage   put something
in the searchbox and press refress F5 ...
