Question "Do you want to leave the page" pops up when replying (should be resolved)

Ok weird problem I've been experiencing in the last few days. A few times when I tried to reply to a message and click reply it will ask me if I want to leave the page or stay. It will post the message, but send me to a page with my post open like I'm still typing and say I tried posting a duplicate post. It usually does that when you type something, but decide not to post and hit back or something, but never when replying. It still posts, but that comes up. I don't know if it's a problem with the new Firefox or what.

Happening to me on Safari. If you select "stay on page" it takes you back to your post in the edit window, so one figures it didn't post and you click the button...only to find out you've just created a double post. I've seen a lot of double posts lately.

Also, for at least a couple of weeks, for some reason I have to click the back button twice to back out of a thread. Safari on a Mac and Firefox on PCs.

I'm having the problem today with the "Leave or stay on page' options appearing. I'm using Firefox browser. Seems to be a refresh issue of sorts. I've been clicking the 'Leave page' choice and it wants to move on, but I then have my post with an 'updated' area with a copy of my post appearing at the bottom.
Regards, Robert

PS: didn't just happen with this post; I'm using the 'Quick Post' feature, but it may be related to using the 'quote' function as my priors with the problem were all 'quotes' whereas this one was not a quote.

UPDATE: Seems to happen when I use the Quote feature for sure; just repeated the problem in another thread by clicking 'Quote' - hope this helps!

Just happened to me. I went back and edited my post so it was duplicated.

There are some issues. Had it happen to me too today. I noticed what seems like every second post I make, there's a delay in posting. Also noticed one post that quoted itself (posted twice). Weird.
