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 wrote a message in the chat, and then edited it. But when I submitted it, my change did not show up until I refreshed the page.

browser + version? – PeeHaa Jul 3 '12 at 12:01
@Pee: I have seen this, too. FF, several versions over the last two years. – sbi Jul 3 '12 at 12:20
Chrome, latest user branch. – DeadMG Jul 3 '12 at 12:47
Are you getting this bug too:… ? I see this bug after editing as well, and sometimes after posting – Ben Brocka Jul 3 '12 at 13:52

I have this often, because I ninja-edit a lot and I'm pretty quick with the keyboard.

There's a delay sometimes.

If you edit too quickly there will be a race: the 'confirmation' of initial post received, will overwrite the later edit locally only and temporarily. Usually in <1s the edit confirmation is received and replaces the initial version locally too.

If a browser-refresh was necessary, you might want to look into the java console for errors (use Dragonfly/Firebug/IE developer toolbar etc.) There might be a bug/browser incompatibility that blocked one of the chat events.
