Bug New nuisance in posting

    In the last couple of days two or three times it has happened that after writing out a post taking some time, not enormous, and trouble, enough, the posting box went blank and there was some timed-out message, and I could not recover my text.

    I have not had this before nor changed my habits.

    In practice I will now have to remember to draft my posts outside the site and then paste them so the onsite operation is brief.

    But it would be better if there is any site bug it be fixed .

    Is it just me or my computer? Is it happening to anyone else?

    Browser & OS please, together with version.

    Not that I have any ideas, but at least knowing the browser/OS combination we can see if your problems are reproducible on the same configuration.

    Have you loged out recently and forgotten to check the "remember me" box?

    I have had that happen to me, I use IE and hitting F5 restored the post.

    Never on my main computer where this is happening.
    However I have also accessed PF from my i-pad in these days with and without remember me, I don't know what I did! :blushing:

    However knowing about this F5 I will remember and try if it happens again, thank you.

    So far it seems it is not a general problem.

    The firefox add-on Lazarus can recover posts (or any other text you write / forms you fill out) for you.
