    It's irritating to compose a long reply to post and then get a "Document expired" message when you try to preview it. Usually all your message is lost after that. I assume this is a feature of forum that can't be fixed.

    is there a clever way to recover the message in Firefox by hunting through cached pages? I don't see any way to use the normal navigation available to do this.

    When logging in, you should click the "Remember Me" button. That way, you won't get logged out.

    Try to "refresh" the page, I know that usually works in IE, don't know if FF has that capability.

    I usually just click the "preview" button periodically.

    It does. If e.g. the preview page doesn't load properly because of a connection issue, all you have to do is to refresh it (and agree to resend the information). There was a time when I somehow managed to try to make a post just when the backup started almost every day, so I've had to do this a lot.

    But "remember me" needs to be checked (and cookies allowed, but since they are by default, that's usually not a concern). Without that, you get logged out, and then I think you're screwed.
