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? – Jarrod Dixon Feb 6 '12 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. – kiamlaluno Feb 6 '12 at 18:32

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.
