#6578 Posts to tracker get lost at first attempt

Fred Toussi

This has happened twice. My log in settings is to keep me logged in.

I clicked on a link in an email sent by SF when a tracker item was added.

On the SF page it showed at the top that I was logged in.

On the tracker item I entered a new text and clicked on post. The screen was redirected to a a different screen saying my user name was already logged in. When I clicked the back button on the browser and checked the tracker with reloading the page, my post was not there.

Further attempt to post succeeded.

    Have you perhaps had the page with the post open for a long time before posting? Behavior like that may trigger our anti-spam protection and can result in what you describe.

    Also, as a personal recommendation, the Lazarus Browser Plugin is great for recovering text in cases like this. I use it myself and it's saved me on numerous occasion.

    On the old platform this happened very occasionally on the bug tracker. With Aurora it happens all the time on the first post since the browser (FireFox) has been opened.
    It happens even when I post only a couple of lines very quickly.

    I usually copy the text I am about to post to clipboard and re-paste it after this happens.
