Retrieving old comment text from quick reply

Has anyone ever managed to retrieve old comment text from a quick reply -- for example, if you accidentally closed your browser window, and then reopened it again?

I'm currently looking at it, and I see code that says it should be retrieving the saved form values, but I've never had it work, and I'm trying to figure out if it's just my browser / setup, or if it just plain doesn't work.

I don't remember it retrieving the comment text if I closed the tab, but I think it sometimes retrieves it if I accidentally click a link and click the Back button to go back to the page.

Let's test....

Okay, I clicked to your main page and came back, and the comment text is still here. \o/ Now I'm closing the browser window.

Oh! I closed it and re-opened it, and the text is still here! Let's try again.

Okay, it worked again, even after opening other pages.

I'm using Chrome 10.0 on Windows XP.

Maybe it was LJ where it doesn't work. But at any rate, it's working for me here today.
