Any way to repopulate the input field on browser back button?

On most browsers, back button goes back to the search page (from results page) and the values in the input field are remembered somehow, so one can easily modify something.

Using this extension, the back button in browser going back to this form reinitializes so the form is empty. I know there is the preFill option, but how do I know what was there in the field in the first place?
