All you have edited is lost if you return from preview with the browser back button when two conditions are met
- You have passed the pickaxe. It does not matter if you preview from pickaxe mode or you have returned to wysiwyg before you preview
- You use Firefox This will be very annoying for FF users.

I see two better ways to deal with the preview problem.
- The difficult. Add button to preview that brings you back to last edit mode. We can save from preview mode so obviously we have the entire topic text in a buffer that we can get back to same way as we change between pickaxe and wysiwyg
- The easy. Remove all the buttons from the preview screen and change the display of preview to pop-up in new window. This way you cannot possibly loose anything because your normal edit window is still open.
How difficult is it to implement the number 2? Removing buttons from preview template should be safe. Is it easy to change the action of previewing to open new window?

This is currently the most urgent of all bugs so I am adding this comment to elevate it to the top of the changed list.

Preview button has been removed (though I note we now have "or or" in the menu bar
) Lowered to Normal.
With fckeditor, the preview button works well. And I can click the go back button on ff or IE. Nothing is lost. See my integration of FCKEditor: http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Codev/UseFckeditorForWysiwyg
