Crash recovery should attempt to recover filled in form elements

Bug Description

Binary package hint: epiphany-browser

Epiphany offers to recover previously opened windows and tabs if it is forcibly closed (power cut, crash, manually killed, etc.) and this works well, but it would be really useful if it attempted to recover the contents of forms. For example, if a user is writing a blog entry in a web based form, or a forum post, or a comment on a page, etc. and Epiphany crashes then the text is not recovered. It would be nice to have this functionality now that a lot of users' output goes into web forms.

I understad that this may be difficult for dynamically generated and changing web pages, but for simple pages it seems doable.

Of course the contents of password fields should not be saved!
