Possible Bug

Often when I'm doing an extensive Twiki page edit I repeatedly click 'Preview Changes', then 'Save Changes', then 'Edit' - rather than clicking the back button from the preview page to make additional changes.

I do this because occasionally Internet Explorer will mess up in that when I click 'back' I sometimes get the old (pre-edited) version of the document. There is a rememedy, which is to click 'forward', then save changes, then click 'edit'.

This is the BackFromPreviewLosesText bug, which now has a complete fix without requiring user interface changes

No, it is different because in this case no pop-up window is involved. We can make this happen consistently with the latest & greatest TWiki release (01 Feb 2003 according to TWiki), but on the older release we upgraded from (Oct 2001, I believe) it was not a problem.

We've confirmed this behavior with OPera 7.11, Mozilla and Mozilla 1.2.1, all under linux, as well as IE 6 on windows. Konqueror 3.1.x under linux appears to function without this problem.

Is this still an issue? EditAfterSaveGivesOldVersion has a similar situation which gets solved by RefreshEditPage

I am closing this bug. Please reopen in case this is still an issue.
