Don't allow going back without confirmation of potential data loss
Closed, InvalidPublic


When users resolve an edit conflict, they create content that has not been saved anywhere yet. If they click the back button of the browser / cancel link by accident, they might lose that information

Before leaving the edit conflict resolution page in another way than saving it, ask users for confirmation and give them the option to go back.
