Lost session data after browser or system crash
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

In case of a browser or system crash, after restart the browser/system, the actual default wikitext editor shows the session data with all the inserted text as it was before the crash.

In case of the new, beta WikiTextEditor, after restart I receive back the original page (as it was saved last time) for editing, therefore I loose all changes I made between the last save and the crash.

Therefore after I recently lost big amount of changes two times in an article, I started to save the not yet finished edits frequently to avoid this again.

Can we solve somehow, that the new surface provide the same safety as the old one?

I think this is a feature of a browser and therefore fixing this will be really hard, or even impossible.
