Turn back to the page before a POST

  • Hello, I'm now willing to use Opera 33 to test my development on some pages, and when it comes to check data processed by POST forms, I will often turn back using "back" button and make some changes to the data going to be submitted again.

    This workflow is working fine with Explorer 11, but Opera 33, when I press the "back" button, instead of let me see the page before the POST, shows only a warning that the page was a result of a submitted form and asks me if submit it again, that is not an option to me because data has been processed by a number of POST submits before, and reposting last form will makes me lose every adjustment I made and then submitted last time.

    Is it possible disable that behaviour and make it working as Explorer or Opera 12 ?

    On side note, I noticed Opera 33 is very very slow on processing cursor into the textarea fields, the lag of text being simply selected is noticeable.

  • A bit offtopic, but it is (was?) common practice to redirect POST results to GET pages to avoid such resubmittal dialogs. Older browsers were quite consistent to ask these questions always after POST - BACK navigation, maybe some newer ones just ignore this scenario.

    About textarea fields - have you spellchecking turned on? Or some extension processing textareas? On both my systems (slow XP and faster W7) I don't see any slowdowns (plugins disabled, no spellchecker, no text processing extensions).
