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

This isn't an exact duplicate of anything I could find on meta. But:

I can't comment on my own posts/answers. It gives me the box and the submit button, and when I click on the submit button, it acts like it posts, and it refreshes the page, but the comment disappears into the void of nothingness. There are no error messages or anything. I just lose my comment

Browser and version? Anything in the JavaScript console? Posting a comment shouldn't refresh the page. The fact that it is might suggest that JavaScript died and the button is acting like a normal submit button. – animuson Jan 29 '13 at 19:25
What browser? Tried clearing your cache? – Bart Jan 29 '13 at 19:25
Ubuntu Linux 12.10 Firefox 18.0.1 – Mr Mikkél Jan 29 '13 at 19:34
(Huh, looks like I can post comments here.....) And you're right, no refreshing on meta. – Mr Mikkél Jan 29 '13 at 19:34
OK, on page load I get the following error in the console: Error: Error: useless setTimeout call (missing quotes around argument?) Source file: Line: 13 === Then, when clicking on the "Comment" link, when it opens the textbox to comment in, I get the following error: Error: TypeError: d.charCounter is not a function Source file: Line: 179 – Mr Mikkél Jan 29 '13 at 19:37
And you did try clearing your browser's cache? – Bart Jan 29 '13 at 19:47
Yep. Sure did. Interestingly, though, I've discovered that if I refresh enough times, I can get 1 out of 13-ish refreshes to let me comment.... – Mr Mikkél Jan 29 '13 at 19:57
@MrA That's not a great hit rate! – AndrewC Jan 29 '13 at 21:54
I dare say it's not.... – Mr Mikkél Jan 30 '13 at 1:37
