    Default "Are you sure you want to leave?"

    Here’s an issue I’ve had for years, regardless of browser. Often, when I try to navigate to a new page, I get the warning message shown. And no, I’m not trying to edit anything and have no edit window open. It just happens randomly, but often. A nuisance. Any ideas?

    I only get that when I have started typing a reply, then decided not to post it. Never when I just look at a thread.

    Yeah, I get it at random, without trying a reply or anything else. I guess the forum gods are pissed at me!

    I get that panel occasionally but only immediately after I've posted - if I abandon the page then the post usually still goes through, but occasionally the post gets duplicated if I try something different.

    Is it not possible that you are clicking the cursor in the reply box, even if not replying?

    Given than leaving the forum seems to force a logout, maybe it's a useful warning?
