Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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

About 7 hours ago I posted a question on SO. Now I went to post another one using the "Ask question" option, but instead of an empty form, I got the form pre-filled with the previous question I asked, as if I were editing it instead of asking a new one.

I have not tried to modify this, as I don't want to accidentally lose my first question in case it is in edit mode.

Is it just my browser or a bug in SO?

"Which database for update-heavy application?" is the most recent question I see from your account, and it's 7 hours old. – blahdiblah May 22 '12 at 23:03
    
It's been 7 hrs? OMG, time flies :) I fixed the question. Problem still remains. – Milan Babuškov May 22 '12 at 23:04

This sounds like the autosave feature at work. It should go away when you post the question though. – Pëkka May 22 '12 at 23:04
    
Pekka, what does that mean? How do I create a completely new question if it keeps giving me the old one to edit? – Milan Babuškov May 22 '12 at 23:06

The editor saves a draft of your post as you edit in case you accidentally navigate away, etc. It's probably showing you the old draft content in a new question. Look at the top bar - if there's no question ID in the URL then you're not editing. (And even if you do accidentally trash your old question, edits are easy enough to roll back!) – Rup May 22 '12 at 23:07
    
Thanks Rup, I completely forgot about reverting edits. Could you please copy/paste your comment as an answer so that I can accept it. – Milan Babuškov May 22 '12 at 23:12
