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: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/130422/… ? 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.
