When my network is down and I try to vote something, I get this error: An error has occurred - please retry your request. But the vote button is still red and after connecting to the network, I can't retry my request. The only way to retry is to refresh the page and press the vote button again. Is there a better way to retry voting request?

    Well, the wording is confusing, I agree. You can simply click the vote arrow again, even though it's already "red". – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask V2 Jun 17 '15 at 8:18
  • Can you be more specific on the red button? What red button? Can you add a screenshot? – Patrick Hofman Jun 17 '15 at 8:38
  • I have tried clicking the red arrow again, but it is not working. After refreshing the page, the arrow is "not red". – Mahmood Dehghan Jun 17 '15 at 8:53
  • Did you have the site open on two or more tabs and logout of one of them? – Robert Longson Jun 17 '15 at 9:06
  • No. I never logout of SO ! – Mahmood Dehghan Jun 17 '15 at 9:08

    So, the bug here is that the upvote button is highlighted even though the upvote failed. It should stay gray in such case. – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask V2 Jun 17 '15 at 9:26
