This occasionally drives me crazy.

When updating an issue I type a detailed comment in the textarea. I need to check something so I click a link to an attached file or another ticket. Since the update form is loaded through an AJAX request hitting back in my browser means that all of my input is destroyed (and not preserved by the browser).

It would be great if there was some mechanism in place to prevent dummies like me from doing this repeatedly. Perhaps a Gmail style, "You've edit this page, are you sure you want to leave it" JS, or loading the update form through a conventional (non-Ajax) request, so that browsers preserve the form fields.

Thanks for the great system.

Shouldnt really be a defect, should it? It works as intended. If you think it should be enhanced i´d guess it should be a feature request.
