This is in Firefox. Are you using a different browser?
I posted this earlier to another person, and I'm not sure if it applies, but for those getting the prompt re: being sure if you want to navigate away from the page:
Please be sure that when you're composing a message in the quick reply box at the bottom of the page, that when you want to submit the message, you click the "Post Quick Reply" button at the bottom of the box and NOT the "Post Reply" button above the box.
The Post Reply button above the box takes you to the full/regular reply composition screen, which is why you'd be prompted about whether or not you wanted to leave the page if you were in the process of composing a message in the quick reply box.
I did this myself a couple of times, which is why I bring it up as a possibility!
If those experiencing the problem don't think that's the cause, please let me know.
Please be aware that if you accidentally close down a thread you were in the middle of replying to, or you lose it for some reason, if you open the thread back up and go to the reply box, you should be able to click "Restore Auto-Saved Content" at the bottom of the message composition box. It will restore whatever you had typed up until the last time the little yellow "auto-saved" message popped up when you were composing your message previously. Pretty cool new feature!
Mod 1, I am definitely not clicking the post reply button instead of the post quick reply button. I hit post quick reply, I get the prompt, I click "okay" (or yes or whatever the affirmative is) and my post is added to the thread. Sometimes I am taken back to post one on the thread and sometimes I am taken to the last post on the thread. When this happens to me, it's repeatable--that is, if I click "no" at the prompt and try clicking "post quick reply" again, I get the prompt. I can say no as many times as I like, but my response doesn't post until I say "yes" at the prompt to navigate away from the page. As near as I can tell, actually getting the prompt initially is not predictable at all. Sometimes I see it a few times a day, others I do not see it at all.
The "post reply" button is also still finicky and not clickable for me unless I line up the tip of the cursor to the top edge of the button.
Speaking of the post reply button, I still have very hit or miss results when I try to use the button at the bottom of the page. The one at the top of the page always works.
Simkie said earlier that she is on Firefox; what browser are others using who are experiencing issues with the "do you want to leave this page" prompt when attempting to post replies?
I use FF and I get the 'do you want to leave this page' when using the quick reply box and the 'post quick reply' button.
Like has been said above, the post reply button at the bottom of the page has never been fixed so to use it you have to hit the very small spot above it that actually works. Are they still working on that problem or are they just leaving it not working?
I have had it happen on Explorer and Chrome.
Alright Mod 1, this might be helpful:
I just got the prompt while posting in the Eventing forum. I thought I'd try to get a video capture for you, so I just left it and went to go set up the software to do the actual capture. It took a few minutes because my internet connection was acting a little weird.
By the time I got back here and had everything set up, my connection was back to normal and the post went through without a pop up, which is the first time that's happened--always in the past, if I get the pop up once I get it again, but I don't think I've ever just let it sit for several minutes before trying again.
Perhaps the prompt only occurs if the board is a little laggy or the user's internet connection is slow?
The 'do you want to leave this page' thing just happened to me. Using quick reply and the post quick reply button.
So I have not been using Ispell, which is rough as spelling is not my forte, and we all know about the spelling police on this forum :)
Also wondering if the "Post Reply" button on the bottom will be fixed at some point.
