[thelist] firefox maintaining post data after refresh

i'm building an online management system where, after critical form 
submissions, the page does an auto-refresh (with a "thanks for 
submitting" message).

i thought that this would clear the post data so that if a user then 
pressed refresh, the data would not get re-submitted.

however it looks like firefox doesn't.

has anyone else encountered this and, if so, is there a way around it?

i've done a search for online (including the firefox support forums), 
but couldn't spot anything relevant...
