Sometimes, I type in some text and submit, then it's not submitted for some reason or another, and when I go back, the text is lost. Is there a way to retreive this lost text?

is there a "re-type what I type in the last hour?" program?

For Firefox, there is an add-on named "Lazarus" which gives you exactly what you want:

This is from the description of the add-on:

Never lose anything you type into a web form again! Lazarus securely auto-saves all forms as you type, so after a crash, server timeout, or whatever, you can go back to the form, right click, "recover form", and breathe a sigh of relief.
