Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

When I click the edit link of a post, then type immediately, then, after a few seconds, the post will return to the state before edited. I have to type again.

This may be caused by the network latency, but could this problem be solved?

It will happen when you click the edit link multiple times quickly, and edit immediately after the textarea shows.

Check this link, I recorded my screen.

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

then after a few seconds, the post will return to the state before edited. But how? By clicking Save Edit, Cancel, back button of browser or automatic? – hims056 Sep 28 '12 at 9:53
@hims056 Automatic.... – xdazz Sep 28 '12 at 9:55
@kiamlaluno The edited part disappears after a few seconds, that's what I mean. – xdazz Sep 28 '12 at 9:59
Does this always happens or just in some cases? If so, describe what you do. – Alenanno Sep 28 '12 at 10:03
I think you need to describe your question more briefly, i can not figure out what you want to ask. – Lucifer Sep 28 '12 at 10:07
Cannot replicate. I clicked edit and immediately started typing (even before page loaded, and the post is edited the moment the focus moves to the textarea) then waited a few minutes... edited content remains. (Firefox 15.0.1) – Shawn Chin Sep 28 '12 at 10:20
Wait some time, i will try to make a gif to show it. – xdazz Sep 28 '12 at 10:21
@xdazz Yes this occurs to me also. But not every time. Does this issue occurs to you after canceling it without editing? – hims056 Sep 28 '12 at 11:44
@hims056 Yes, this occurs to me very often, I need to wait some time then edit. it happens when you double click the edit link . – xdazz Sep 28 '12 at 12:45
