Hitting the "Back" button on Firefox worked for me.

Hum,

Glad I read through the forum today - this is not how it should be nor how I wrote it way back when I installed it.

I have had a look and found that an update to the reCapture software caused a problem if you forgot to check it. I have now coded around this and you will not lose you post.

I have been using an Addon on my Firefox called Textarea Cache. This records everything you type into your newsgroups and the like. If you do something silly or have a system crash and lose your typing you can recover it easily. The Addon puts an icon in one of the toolbars, you just click on the icon and then go looking for your text.

There are a number of other similar Addons for FF, If Textarea Cache is not available on your browser I'm sure there would be something similar for your browser.

Had something similar happen on Exploroz with the Preview option a while back. David was AGAIN very quick to fix the problem, caused by an upgrade oversight iirc.

I often ctrl-c before posting on some sites but occasionally forget. Found this Chrome extension
Typio Form Recovery
which might be useful to some

That one is similar to the Textarea Cache I mentioned in my previous reply. In the link you supplied they make mention of Lazarus Form Recovery. I used that way back but its creator did not update it when Firefox suffered a serious update. It also did not translate to Win 10. There are plenty of similar Addons and I can recommend that everyone should have one of them installed to overcome mishaps.
