About 1/3 of the time, when I click "Preview Question" after writing a post, it resets the question and I lost everything I've written. It gets annoying when I spend awhile getting the words just right, and it resets. I'm using Google Chrome. I have to 'Copy' my question before clicking "Preview Question" because it resets so often. Does that happen to anyone else?
Yeah, that used to happen to me all the time because I tend to write long answers a lot of the time, and spend time wording everything 'just so'. =P Firefox has a nifty add-on that is like THE answer to this problem, haha, I discovered it like a year or two ago. It's called Lazarus: Form Recovery in the add-ons section. THOUGH they also have their own site where you can download from, which I believe is effective for several different browsers.
It happens to me too. I hate it especially when I've written a very long answer it sucks. So I always copy the answer. Just last night I wrote a long answer and while copying I ended up deleting g the answer. I always find whenever this happens I write a even better answer
That's always frustrating. What I did was, like you said, copy and paste because if it takes you a while to type out your post, it'll sign you out automatically. Something else I did was just click "remember me" at the login screen. To be safe though, I usually copy and paste me longer posts.
I asked the same question not to long ago actually. The general opinon that I found was that after awhile the page times itself out. If you write long answers like I tend to, get into the habit of copying your answers before hitting the "preview answer" button. If it goes away, simply go back to the question and hit paste.
