I always right click and copy my posts before hitting the submit button. That way if it is lost when submitting it is still available to paste into the second attempt. It is a simple habit to get into and saves frustration from lost posts.

Thanks, Alpine Hunter…But I still wonder what is causing this FUBAR on irregular occasions (not a constant thing).

In my experience, it never seems to happen when I remember to save the text before clicking the “submit” button, only on the odd occasions when I forget to :) !
