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.

My cache is cleared every time I close my browser so no. It also doesn't save the text if I open the same URL in a new tab or open a link from this page. I think the only way it works for me is with the back button. (FF4 on Windows 7)

With the code that Fu's talking about, it wouldn't be dependent on your browser cache, I think.
