When the new non-Flash contest interface was introduced I reported a bug in which reloading the contest page causes the timer to reset. Apparently this still isn't fixed even now, and it has been a pertaining issue during the WS+PC for me as I had been hit by this for the third time... Could anyone please look into what's going on?

We have tested this out and it only resets in appearance for a few seconds then reverts back. If you are facing a different case let us know.

Well it didn't for me... Reload might have been a bad choice of wording, since in all three occurrences, I've mistakenly went back a page and then went forward to see the contest page again. Did this change the behaviour of the contest engine?

We tested out this specific case of going back and coming forward again. It does reset the timer for appearance, the only thing we can do is suggest that you refresh once after coming forward again, then the timer goes back to what it should be.
