Can we fix our Trac that doesn't lose new ticket text

Edward Z. Yang
Steps to reproduce:

1. Click "New Ticket"
2. Type some text into the box
3. Press "Back" in your browser
4. Press "Forward" in your browser

If you try this with an official Trac this doesn't happen, so either
this was fixed in a new version, or we have a plugin installed which
is causing this to happen.

Current version of Trac is 1.0.5, we're currently running 1.0.1

Thanks,
Edward

On the contrary, I did precisely that just a few days ago (https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/10338), and to my surprise, trac *did* save my new ticket text. Perhaps this is a browser-specific issue? I'm using 64-bit Chrome 42.0.2311.90.

With a recent Firefox, I lost the text by clicking into "Formatting
Hints" and surfing back. I was not amused.

Cheers,

Whatever the case, it affects me, it affects SPJ, so we ought to fix it!

My Firefox also has this issue. So it seems the problem is the browser itself. How can this be fixed on the server side?

My very pessimistic rule of thumb is don't trust a form field unless the site actively saves a draft as you type.

Re: Can we fix our Trac that doesn't lose new ticket text

Edward Z. Yang
I've tried a few Firefox browser extensions which purport to "never
lose your form text", but I find they just don't save frequently enough
for my taste.  I would love to know an extension that does this
properly!

Re: Can we fix our Trac that doesn't lose new ticket text

Not related to issue, but generally for Firefox I suggest an addon "Form History Control" (UI is not superb, but it does what it should do) https://addons.mozilla.org/uk/firefox/addon/form-history-control/

For Chrome, "Lazarus Form Recovery" used to work, but I'm not sure it still does, since it seemed abandoned.

Current version of Trac is 1.0.5, we're currently running 1.0.1

Re: Can we fix our Trac that doesn't lose new ticket text

Dan Doel
In reply to this post by Edward Z. Yang
At a guess, I recently had some websites start refreshing more than I thought they used to when using the back/forward buttons. From what I gather, this is due to the websites specifying no-cache or something similar in their HTTP (?) headers. I think reloading the page throws away entered text, while going back/forward to a stored page does not.

Perhaps something the ghc trac is using is setting this? Or it could be something outside trac entirely?

Also wouldn't surprise me if Chrome behaves differently with such a setting than Firefox.

Not sure if that helps.
