Allow questions to be saved as drafts prior to posting

I'd like to ask a new question on SO, but when I click the "Ask Question" button, the form is pre-filled with all my text from the previous question, which I asked a few days ago. I tried this in another brand browser (Internet Explorer and Google Chrome) and the same text showed up.

I saw some mention on this site that this is a new "draft" feature? But I've already published the last question, so I don't see why it should be showing as a draft now. Also, how do I remove this so I can write my new one?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
This happened to me as well once. I guess it's the draft mode. Just replace the title and text. –  GUI Junkie Jul 24 '11 at 0:01

and to the friendly patrons who voted me down - this is an actual bug, after I cleared and posted a new question, it didn't reappear. So something was wrong. Thanks for your support. –  boomhauer Jul 25 '11 at 4:08
    
sounds like draft mode to me, not a bug. –  Kyle Trauberman Jul 6 '12 at 8:39
    
Notice I had already posted the question that was re-appearing. Thus it sound(ed?) like a bug in the draft mode feature. Btw why is this downvoted? Reporting a valid bug gets a downvote? –  boomhauer Jul 10 '12 at 6:09

This happend to me many times. It is not fatal bug, though.

You can clear/save your draft fast, by using this Chrome/FF extension.

PS: Internet Explorer is not a valid browser ;)
