The problem with lists module fontend widget content disappearing after post back is a known issue which we have been working on fixing for the upcoming releases. The fix is already done and is in its final testing stages, so that we'll be able to include it in the upcoming Sitefinity 5.1 release.
Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused by this bug.
