In his Firefox is your Friend post, Greg mentioned that there are hundreds of FREE Add-ons that enhance the functionality of Firefox. One of the coolest is Lazarus. The current version doesn't bring people back from the dead. (Although maybe they are working on a paid version that does...)
What does Lazarus Do? (Directly from the people who make it)
Ever had one of those "oh $*#@" moments when you realize you've just
lost half an hour of your life because something went wrong while you
were entering stuff into a web form and there doesn't seem to be any
way to recover it? If so, you need Lazarus. If not, install it anyway,
before disaster strikes!
Lazarus securely saves forms as you type, allowing you to safely
recover your lost work after server timeouts, network issues, browser
crashes, power failures, and all the other things that can go wrong
while you're entering forms, editing content, writing webmail, etc,
How to get Lazarus (Firefox Only)
- Click Here
- Click the green "Add to Firefox button"
- Click the "Allow" button in the upper right of the screen
- Click "Install Now"
- Restart Firefox
You can now use Lazarus by right clicking a web form and choose recover text or recover form!
