Parent window refresh problem

Hi All,

I have the following scenario :

I have a link in the parent window,the click of which opens a popup(child) window.I enter some data in the textarea of the child window and then minimize the child window.When I click on the link in the parent window again,the child window gets focussed and the previous contents of the textarea in the childs window are retained.
When the parent window gets refreshed,due to some activity in the window,with the child window minimized,and then click on the link again,the child window gets reloaded and the contents of the child window get lost,which should not happen.

I have some questions on the above scenario :

1) Can we retain the unsaved contents of a child window when the parent window gets refreshed?

Thanks in advance.
