Lost comments

Hi! I used to be able to start a comment then go to another tab to find more info then come back and finish the comment. E.g. Want to add a couple more references or Youtube videos.

Now, if I leave the comment disappears. Also, all the new comments don't register. Is there something wrong with my computer or is this a new annoying feature? I don't understand why I can't add info to my comment because it is lost.


P.S. No rush -- I'm going to bed anyway and this isn't an emergency.

    This may be related to your using tabs. I've never liked browser tabs. If I want to keep a page up while going somewhere else, I just open a new instance of the browser. (I use Firefox.) Doing it that way, I never lose comments.

    Hello, and thanks for asking.

    This doesn't seem quite right to me either, but I will double-check to make sure.
    What browser are you using? And have you changed your setup in any way lately?
