PLEASE FIX THIS PROBLEM!!!!!

PLEASE FIX THIS PROBLEM!!!!!

This has happened to me at least 4 times in the last 30 days.

 

I'm happily replying to a post, typing away, gathering info, copying and pasting, spellchecking, then I hit the "Post" button, and I get the dreaded "read only" message because the freakin' post was moved while I was replying!!!!

 On top of that the autosave does not work when that happens so you can not retreive your reply.

Please put a move lock on threads that have an open reply window.

Re: PLEASE FIX THIS PROBLEM!!!!!

Yes I get a similar message as Uni posted, using XPMCE SP3 and IE8 as well as Win7 and IE9.

 

I do not get any warnings. I hit the post button and I get the "Read Only" page. If I hit the backspace (back button) it reloads the "read only" page. If I hit the backspace twice in rapid succession, it will take me back to the reply page, but it is blank (no reply) and the "Recover" button for the Autosave is not available.

 

There is something in the code that wipes the cached page of your reply from your computer or it would be there when you backspace. Normally, with a successful post, you can backspace 5 or 10 pges and your reply will still show up on the old reply page. So there is definately a difference between successful posts and failed posts in the way the the pages get cached on your computer.

It has only been a few time but I agree with Uni there is nothing to recover. I have even seen the auto save message activate just before I hit POST and still no recovery. I use FF beta so i have the newest code at the time and Win7 also.


Actually SKP, Aurora is FF beta's beta and I have the latest code on Aurora 12.0a2 (2012-2-08) today.

Re: PLEASE FIX THIS PROBLEM!!!!!

This is getting off the OP subject but to those interested I not had any problems with any of the FF betas. If you want to take the plunge the only hitch may be an Extention not working. The widely Extentions are keeping up with the beta releases.

I will let Chris speak for the beta beta but I am guessing they are just as stable as just the betas final releases.  These releases seem to be more stable then Final releases were in the past.

Re: PLEASE FIX THIS PROBLEM!!!!!

I was running Aurora for a while, but there were indeed some problems with it. I ran into some Javascript execution problems in Aurora 11a (now Firefox Beta 11) that prevented some sites like GoDaddy's Domain Manager from working.

So even though they may not crash or otherwise give obvious problems, they are still beta and alpha quality that you have to watch out for.

I have since reverted back to the Firefox release chain, and I'm currently running Firefox 10.

Actually SKP, I've not had any surfing/email problems w/Aurora, but it ia a beta's beta w/an update every single day.

 

Not worried about any extensions, IEpage is pretty obsolete now, pretty much everything opens in Aurora/FF properly.  Using the Host file from MVPs.org covers any AdBlock or scripts, etc. extensions, it stops just about everything (as new things pop up, it's updated a every 2 months).

Yes he can route a problem to someone that can get it fixed. I will have to tell Ralph how good he is next time we speak.
