    Hello Everyone,

    I've received a few complaints about some wonky controls and have been battling the same exact disappearance of text myself since day one...so I hear ya! Mad Smile

    For those of you who haven't had the experience it goes like this...When you unintentionally click somewhere on the screen other than in the text entry window and then press TAB or Backspace or sometimes even a Space Bar...Your screen jumps to a different part of the page or goes to a different page altogether, resulting in the loss of a post you've been working so hard on.

    I admit - the controls are a bit wacky, so what can I do?

    Absolutely nothing...the forum doesn't support it and doesn't allow me to do any coding to help you guys .

    Now the important question is what can YOU do?

    Well now I have an answer - Browser plug-in called Lazarus. Smile

    Lazarus is a free plug-in for your internet browser which simply "has your back" when faced with a browser glitch or a crash. Current versions of Lazarus support the following internet browsers - Firefox, Safari, and Google Chrome.
    I know, Internet Explorer is what some of you use and I've looked for a form recovery app...unfortunately I came up with nothing. Lazarus may be coming out with an IE version of this app, but there seems to be a form of encryption to be dealt with, so there is no definite date when an IE version will be available... if at all. Neutral

    For now All I can offer is a text recovery solution for the above listed browsers, personally I've been using Firefox and recommend it to all of my friends, so try it out...you won't be sorry. Wink

    Downloads..Enjoy! Very Happy


    Screenshots:...click on Spoiler to expand it.

    Spoiler:


    No more lost Text. Restore-form-submenu

    No more lost Text. Options-general

    No more lost Text. Options-security

    No more lost Text. Wysiwyg

    No more lost Text. Options-database

    No more lost Text. Statusbar-context-menu


    Install, Restart browser, and enjoy the freedom of hitting all the wrong buttons, be it intentionally or not...you can now always restore your text.

    Hope this Helps.

    Ivo

    PS:
    Please consider donating to the Lazarus team, the app is great and is
    very useful in getting you out of many other non-forum related browser
    glitch&crash situations. You can visit Lazarus Home-page by following this Link.

    Hey thanks Ivo. That looks like a good add-on for Firefox (and other lesser browsers Razz )

    I get the tab breaking things as that's a browser issue not a forum issue. It can be handy to use to skip to the next text box in some forms. But the others are new and annoying.
