I was editing a comment I wrote, and when I clicked on the button to save the edit, the page became as in the following screenshot:


As you see, the comment is replaced with the content that should be in the header. This is the second time I notice this, but I don't recall if I was editing a comment also in that case.

If this makes any difference, I am using Safari 5.1.2. on Mac OS X 10.7.3. The question for which I was editing the comment is Strange error updating PHP code in a node; as side note, the comment I was trying to edit has not been saved.

  • You're saying this comment is incorrectly showing an edit, but the edit didn't save? Commented Feb 6, 2012 at 18:26
  • I tried twice to edit the comment; the first time, it happened what I described here, while the second time it was successfully saved. What I did was to remove that from "which means you normally call user_permission()"; before, the comment said "which means that you normally call user_permission()." I don't recall if, when I tried the second time, I refreshed the page, or I followed a link to that question to try editing the comment again.

As your screenshot shows and from looking at the server logs, it seems your browser fetched the home page when trying to save a comment (!).

We're going to have to go with bad/old javascript, maybe from a proxy or our CDN's European node.

If this occurs again, try clearing your browser's cache and trying again. Also, let me know.
