Default Not possible to navigate away from a discussion when you have submitted an answer

Hi,

This problem has been ongoing for some weeks now.
When you post an answer to a discussion and try to go back, you receive a prompt asking if you want to resend the information or cancel, and there is no way you can ignore it as before: either you use other means to go where you want to go, or you resubmit your post.
The problem is browser-independent, I have computers under IE and others working with Mozilla, but the behavior remains the same.

And considering the number of duplicate posts, I'm certainly not alone in this case.

Edit:
I tried to navigate back from this message and it *#{ did it again

The mistake is going back -Instead of going back, go to home located in top the far left hand side in the blue headings.

If indeed you need to edit your post use the edit function, so don't use back go home first and think of ET ... home

Click and hold the back button. You will get a list of the recently viewed pages. Select the one named after the thread, which should appear before/below the one called "diyAudio - Reply to Topic"...
This works in IE and FireFox.

Going back after posting is the problem. You would be going back to the form where you posted your answer. Of course your browser thinks that's a bit hinky.

You should be taken back to the thread by the forum server after you post. That is normal procedure. Is that not happening for you? Is that why you are suing the back button?

Yeah I know, but I instinctively hit the back button, and it used to work, maybe with a message, but another click on back, and that was it.

Now I have to get used to this on DIYaudio, on other sites it still works the old, normal way.
That's a minor annoyance, but if it could be fixed, it would be nice.

After you make a post the normal forum behaviour is to land you back into the discussion you posted in, looking at the post you just made. The software goes thru a couple redirects to get you back, perhaps you are just not patient enuff, or if it takes forever perhaps some time for some computer maintenance.

That's what it does, no problems with that.
But then, I remain stuck, and I cannot use the back button.
