Even the projects are kept after you click Back?

When the user comes back with the navigator, the search field gets erased. This is incorrect.

It would be nice to stop doing that. Thank you.

Now, the behaviour I encounter in Phabricator is worse.

After writing in the task creation form, going away and coming back, the title, the description and the projects are lost!

See the task T129765.
