    New editor - quick reply "stay on page / leave page" is annoying.

    Go to a thread, start typing something. Decide not to post it, hit Ctrl+W / whatever to close the tab, get new annoying "Are you sure?" dialogue box.

    Can we kill whatever's triggering the new annoying dialogue box please?

    Firefox 4.01.

    I am trying to tweak but its because the text has not been auto-saved yet. vbulletin are looking at ways of disabling the prompt/auto-save per person but right now its for all or disabled for all.

    Wouldn't it be better to use the JS trigger to auto-save it at that point silently, just in case?

    (obviously to vbulletin, as it were, not you ZH)

    LOL for some reason I never thought of that, I have posted some feedback and one part was:
    Add a save to cookies option with a separate auto-save time to allow continuous saves but with an update being passed to the server every x seconds. When loading the editor it would check which was freshest and present it, also you this would allow you to auto-save on the following page rather then the current situation where you get a warning prompt. Aka user chooses the change page and auto-save to server has not triggered yet, rather then prompting the next page, what ever it is, would save the cookies contents back into the database which would remove the need for the prompt.
    It appears that vbulletin saves to DB rather then cookie like I had thought. Your suggestion does make more sense though but I wonder if there are restrictions (such as a post action) on what you can do with window.close() (or is it .exit) to prevent you holding the browser up as it were.

    Not exactly I think, I noticed you had JS errors which I think is why you are getting the problem. The first unread link is just a page anchor link so it shouldnt trigger.
