Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I don't know if this is related to my previous reports, but currently when you edit a query in SEDE the changes are ignored by the first Run Query (whether it be a valid query or an error).

The next Run Query seems to perform correctly. Subsequent attempts may fail to display errors, probably related to the previous report.

What do you mean by "the changes are ignored"? – Tim Stone Feb 18 '12 at 9:16
@TimStone: It runs the previous unedited query. – Mark Hurd Feb 18 '12 at 11:37
Hmm...Can you reproduce this on every query? I tried this a few ways and it seemed to be working correctly for me. – Tim Stone Feb 18 '12 at 13:28
While logged out I modified Sam's top query that doesn't need a user id to only admit questions with at least 20 down votes. The first Run Query still includes results with less than 20 down votes. Clicking again gets the right results. Again this is seems to be an IE8 issue. I don't see any problem with Chrome. – Mark Hurd Feb 19 '12 at 0:14
Ahh, thanks for the additional info. I think I repro'ed this in the past, but then thought it was a temporary glitch because I couldn't get it to happen again. Either way, I'll figure out what's going wrong, sorry about that. – Tim Stone Feb 19 '12 at 0:18

Thanks for bringing this issue up. I cannot reproduce it in the current version of SEDE. Please let me know if the problem remains for you.

Note that this was from 2 and half years ago, and I have now updated that machine that was running IE8 on Vista (much to the chagrin of my father). I still have a WinXP IE8, but I cannot repro either. – Mark Hurd Oct 17 '14 at 0:11
@MarkHurd glad to hear there's no repro on XP IE8... and also, I can't believe you still have an XP IE8 box. :D – Haney Oct 17 '14 at 0:13
I use it mainly as an email reader, because I still have Outlook Express running on it. – Mark Hurd Oct 17 '14 at 0:19
@MarkHurd nice, I do miss it in some ways. Solid e-mail client. – Haney Oct 17 '14 at 0:20
