    There are 3 screenshots. The first is when I had just clicked on “Post” after creating the reply, the 2nd that showed my reply got posted (surprisingly, though my reply got posted, the entire reply was still showing in the text-box below -> if this helps). Then the page got stuck, and I had to ‘Refresh’ it. Now the 3rd screenshot shows what I get to see in the refreshed page. My reply vanished!!! Surely a ghostly bug!!! :P

    But sadly enough, I managed to get a screenshot only after this happened (and I lost all the explanations) thrice in a row, with the same question post. The link to it: http://openstudy.com/users/zeerak#/updates/4f8ff4b4e4b000310fae1441

    How long did you wait before you refreshed the page?

    About a couple of minutes or so. I waited for a couple of minutes but the page got stuck, so I captured a screenshot, then waited another minute, before refreshing. However, I am unable to see how the amount of time I waited would affect it, since the post was already appearing. And the point of matter is that my earlier reply which I had posted about 2:30 PM IST, was also not present when I logged-in in the evening (my time around 7 PM IST), to complete my work on the problem. It had vanished simply, as if I had never posted a thing. I reported the complete incident to Colm Shalvey yesterday in the Physics chatbox

    So, I'm going to need to double check the code, to see if I can isolate the potential point of failure, but it sounds like you were sent a message from the server saying your reply had been posted and for some reason it didn't get committed to the database. I'll look into this as soon as I get done making the rounds in OpenStudy Feedback this morning.

    Infact it happens many a times with me , when I post a reply , it hangs , and when I reload the reply gets vanished. Also I have to do this "reloading" many times whenever Iam at OS :-(

    It hasn't been fixed yet, but an engineer at Google was assigned to the issue. We did determine it's a bug in Chrome, our code is just triggering it somehow. So, Google's going to need to patch it on their end. :\

    As noted in another thread a fix has been committed to the Google Chrome codebase. It will be fixed in the next release or the one after. We have been given some options as to how we can avoid this from happening that we're going to look into until the Chrome release is out.

    Same as Chrome - nothing's working it seems - I cleared the cache, the entire history too in fact, multiple times - doesn't work.
