Bug: (title)

When using the back button from preview sometimes lose all entered data.

Test case

SORRY! this is covered by BackFromPreviewLosesText. I had determined that it happens when a popup is displayed - however I'm sure it happens other times - perhaps switching to another IE instance.

This seems to happen sometimes and not others. It may be only if I spent a long time editing before previewing.

It just happend in editing by previous bug on JointEditing.

I am behind a proxy so it could be server ?

Fix record

As you said, it is covered in BackFromPreviewLosesText, and it is purely to do with IE 5.x and 6.x (a caching bug), not the web server or proxy. It would be good if a workaround could be implemented sometime soon, but unfortunately there are no easy fixes. In the mean time, avoid using the Back button from Preview mode, particularly if you have launched another window or clicked on the pop-up help windows in the Edit page.

There is now a fix for this issue, see BackFromPreviewLosesText for the patch and see if it works for you. The real problem is in IE5 etc, but it turns out that a proxy cache may contribute and the server code can correct the problem (by telling IE to cache the Edit page properly).

Fixed in TWikiAlphaRelease.
