When I am filling a form and have to go back a page the stuff I have inserted disappears. Someone told me to set "PRESERVE FORMS" in my browser. I looked but did not find any likely adjustment. I have been in the habit pg taking a screen snip of my form details, but this is clumsy. I received was: " Enable Preserve Form Contents for your web browser. It's located in different places for different browsers, and it should be enabled by default. I'm guess it's not enabled on your system. It will keep all the fields intact in a form such as the e-mail page if you have to click on Back. "

If possible then try to open that page in a new tab via a middle-click or Ctrl and left-click to avoid losing the current form.

Note that you can hold down the left mouse button on the toolbar Back button to open the tab history menu and that you can middle-click an entry to open that page in a new tab.

Thanks. Now I must await the next questionnaire to check that it works. Robert Bogner. It did not work as applied to the present page, i.e. the page on which I am replying to your reply.
