    I spend a good ten minutes writing out a long PM to someone I have been talking to on TSR.
    Just as I press send - my brother switches the wireless router off or whatever it is and the internet connection dies on my laptop and my message is lost.
    TSR smilies could not express how angry I feel right now.
    Why do TSR not have an autosave function - or at least a manual save draft function because then I would at least be able to use that?
    End of rant.

    I always make sure I highlight and copy long messages when writing them in case this happens, or I accidently go back a page or whatever. So get into a habbit of doing that.

    I have that problem when the router starts playing up, but Firefox usually saves my message when I press back....

    What web browser you using?

    Internet Explorer? Yes I'm sure thats the answer you are looking for.
    Can somebody please explain this Firefox thing to me? I've heard nothing but good things about it on here. Thanks.

    Oh how annoying bless you.

    If it helps, I've been writing my PMs on word first (mainly because I can see better than in that stupid box) - I think word autosaves right?

    Worth a try :bigsmile:

    It was a message to you! I'd wrote so much in it.
    I don't have the courage to start writing it again just yet. Sorry!

    Just use Firefox and click the back button, copy the text before sending or write it in WordPad then copyandpaste it into the message.

    Mozilla Firefox is a free and open source web browser descended from the Mozilla Application Suite and managed by Mozilla Corporation. Blah blah blah....


    Basically it's a good internet browser...

    Firefox sucks. It always crashes. (before I get negged from firefox fans, I love it).

    That being said, its far better than anything else.

    You weren't warned, you were alerted. It's just a friendly way of letting you know it was in the wrong place
