I have attempted repeatedly to edit my thread at http://forums.adobe.com/thread/778424?tstart=0 and well before anyone has posted a reply, and the edits are ignored.

Also, CTRL-S inside the rich text editor saves and closes. It should not save and close, it should just save.

Thanks,

Message 3404683 was posted at 2011-01-15T14:08:14.636-07:00 and then

changed 5 minutes later at 2011-01-15T14:13:49.243-07:00. What changes

did you (try to) make?

Also, CTRL-S inside the rich text editor saves and closes.

Saves what? Closes what? On which platform? With which browser? With

which browser plugins?

I tried to correct my spelling mistake on the word "distorted" in the first

paragraph.

My close I meant commit my changes to the original message of that thread.

My expectation is that ctrl-s would save but not commit the message to all

other viewers yet until I post it, presumably with a separate button.

This is running on Firefox (relabelled Iceweasel for copywrong reasons)

running on x86_64 Debian Testing. I can provide the Mozilla version info but

I am replying from a cell phone at present and am not on that particular

browser right now and won't be for a few more hours.

It seems to me that the spelling was corrected just fine, but that there is an issue propagating the changes through the cache to become visible to the users. I guess that is why they call the cache synchronization algorithm "eventually consistent".

the message to all other viewers yet until I post it,

You mean like saving a draft on the server? Or do you mean commit the spelling correction from the spellchecker popup to the main RTE window without doing a commit to the server? If you mean the latter, are you using the spell checker from the RTE or the native Firefox one?

As to the "propagating the changes" issue: If I post a reply or make an edit, the view I should see after every operation should coincide exactly with what I made, and not show stale/old data.

As to the ctrl-s issue:  Actually there are several choices:

  1. Just disable the ctrl-s sequence and force the user to click a button to post
  2. Allow drafts to be saved on the server so that the user can come back to it later and finish off a reply, which means there is a "save" operation that is separate from a "post" operation.  That is probably impractical depending upon what you are able to do from the server side. 
  3. Continue to allow CTRL-s to be the combined "save" and "post" operation, but if you do, then please fix the situation where the users edits are not reflected immediately in their web page view of the forum thread that is then shown after that "post" operation completes..  There is precedence for consistency with what is on a server at such highly trafficed sites as http://stackoverflow.com/ and http://www.linuxquestions.org/.

As per your question:

Or do you mean commit the spelling correction from the spellchecker popup to the main RTE window without doing a commit to the server? If you mean the latter, are you using the spell checker from the RTE or the native Firefox one?

I just made the spelling correction directly without using the spelling correction facilities in Firefox.

I am unable to post new threads. I'm hoping this email will show up in the

forum and someone will answer it.  I am able to login using my account, but

there is no way to add a new discussion thread, nor is there a way to reply

to the thread at http://forums.adobe.com/thread/778424?tstart=0 via the web

site. No, it does not seem to be unique to the operating system, since this

shows up under windows XP 32-bit running Firefox version 3.6.13.

I've since figured out why that was occuring. See http://forums.adobe.com/thread/778825
