[Suggestion] Remember text in quick reply box

Hey there,
I'd just like to throw it out there that there is a bug I am occasionally encountering when typing replies. I will post a topic about it when it next happens; however, the only downside to the bug is that, when I click "Post Reply", it may randomly send me to a page on this website saying something about my authenticity or something. In confusion, I would hit "Back" on my browser and realise that my post didn't appear and all the text I had typed in the Quick Reply box is gone. I've written long posts and lost them this way, but I've learnt to "CTRL+A, CTRL+C" just before clicking Post Reply, and it has saved me; I simply paste it in the Quick Reply box and try again and volia! Posts just fine.
I'm completely clueless at the moment on why it happens to me, I will randomly guess that it's something to do with loitering on a page for too long and then suddenly pressing a button on it makes the website freak out or something.
Anyway, the suggestion is, could the box remember the text that was typed in for when I press "Back"?

A problem that's been plaguing us for a while. It's a difficult one to fix I'm afraid so the best thing we can recommend at this moment like you say is get into the habbit of ctrl + c
