Catch "close window event" with javascript while editing
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: mediazille

When editing a wiki page, can mediawiki please catch the "close window" event
with java-script, and ask the user with a messagebox if he really wants to loose
all his work so far?

I just lost quite some work to a wikipedia article due accidently to hitting
CTRL-W while typing - frustrating.
This could be a user setting, I would say - default: On.

Version: unspecified
Severity: enhancement

This could be implemented as an user Gadget?
