I'm having problems with message board posts, and they said the problem was browser related rather than on their end. And I don't really have the vocabulary to look up a solution, so I'm asking here.
When I'm writing a post in a text box-- and I don't know if it's supposed to be called a text box, but it's shorter than "that box at the bottom of the thread where you type your post and then hit enter"-- if I go to a different page, when I come back, the text box is (inconsistently) blank. Everything I was writing is gone.
This was not the case up until a few days ago. If I needed to, say, post links to a bunch of threads, I could go to each thread in turn, copy the URL, and then back-arrow to the page with the post-in-progress and everything would be there waiting for me. I could be fifteen pages out from where I started, but as long as I used the back-arrow, it would be fine.
Like I said, I made a bug report on the message board itself and they told me "That's not a function of site, it's a function of your browser. If it's changed, it's because your browser has updated (or an extension is interfering)". I also talked to a friend to try to narrow down the problem and he came up with "it's probably a cache issue".
So where do I go from here to try to fix things?
