I had a crash in Mozilla while the above text was in a diary entry window. The crash was while emailing the above announcement to some friends. When I went to re-enter my diary entry, which I had previewed but hadn't posted, I found that my text was restored. Neat. Or is that a Mozilla feature?

A feature I have always wanted in a browser is a confirmation dialog: "Post form contents before closing window?"
