[thelist] refreshing form in firefox doesn't revert to default form values

For most people I'm sure this feature is helpful, but when I'm trying to 
develop a web application it's not - here's what I mean:
- I have a form, some fields have default values, some do not
- I go to the form, fill in some fields, realize I need to make a change 
to the HTML
- I make the change, save the (in this case) .cfm file, and refresh the 
form in my browser
- the fields I've filled in are still filled in, despite the refresh - 
this means clicking 'back' and redoing whatever action I took to get to 
the form (clicking a link, submitting "step 1" of a multi-step form, 

Does anyone know of a way to turn this behaviour off?
