@NicolasBarbulesco Okay :) I'm not a Firefox dev, so those were just guesses.

comment How do I recover a form in Firefox *without* installing a plugin?
@NicolasBarbulesco I still think it is in the cache. I remember having closed Firefox with some forms (and a lot of text) filled in, and they got restored when starting Firefox again, so it could not be in memory only. The guide should appear soon, it says it needs to be peer-reviewed. I edited the post above.

@NicolasBarbulesco It does. I do think it is cached, because otherwise Firefox could not fill in plain (non-js) forms again when navigating through history. And when I tested it (repeatedly), the text vanished after navigating back. I guess Firefox inserted the text from the cache, but then the web page replaced the content by nothing with JavaScript.

Your speed is impressive! :) Oh – and, thank you for your solution.

You might want to add: DO NOT PRESS THE BACK BUTTON on said page. In Firefox, this reproducibly clears the cache in exactly those cases where you want a core dump because the back button does not work (form cleared or filled with JavaScript). Without navigating back, the data stays in memory.

comment Is there a PDF overview program (like image gallery)?
What I miss here is something very basic, search in the PDF files. Also the program forces the user to use its document structure. But apart (as you said, not a perfect match) from that it looks interesting.
