When I submit a form without all required fields, I am taken to an error page with a "back to form" link. If I click that link, it takes me back to the form but clears all the fields. If I just use the browser's back button the fields are still populated.

This is actually not a bug. Because the forms are hosted on our user's servers and then processed with our servers, it would not be possible to prepopulate the fields when the back to form link is pressed. This is due to the fact that all the user puts on their page is simple html and in many cases our user's servers do not support the server side processing capabilities (IE php) that would be required to do this. In the near future we will be introducing hosted forms where this would be a possibility. Please look for this to become a feature sometime during the middle of August.

Thanks,

Could the link use a javascript:history.back command instead of a direct link to the form? That would allow it to act the same as the browser back button, which does not erase the fields.

Excellent call...we'll implement this into the next update set for mid August.
