I just started using Mantis and so far I have been very impressed with it's ease of setup and use.  I have run into one problem with reporting a bug.  If I miss a required field when entering a bug I get a page that says:


A necessary field 'Client Name' was empty. Please recheck your inputs.

Please use the "Back" button in your web browser to return to the previous page. There you can correct whatever problems were identified in this error or select another action. You can also click an option from the menu bar to go directly to a new section.

I understand why I am getting this.  However when I click on the back button the form is empty.  I have tried this with both Internet Explorer and Firefox.  Both show me an empty form when clicking the back button.  I am using Mantis 0.19.1 behind an apache web server running on linux.  I am running my browsers on Windows XP SP 2. 

On other forms, such as the google advanced search page, I can click the back button and all my search criteria is still in the form.  Is there some setup that I need to change?  Is there something specific about the Report Issue form that is preventing the browser from saving the responses?

Thanks for you help and advice,
