doublepost bug bug June 11, 2002 6:22 PM   Subscribe

Well not a meta bug but an IE5.1/OS 10.1.5 one, and a first for me, I was using IE5.1/OS 9.1, never had the double comment blurb.

This is what changed for me, if I use the browser back button, after hitting post in the previous window, it post's twice, never happened in the earlier system, and I did it a lot (back button)...won't again I hope...but for what it's worth...

Damn, thanks for the advice, keyboard shortcuts need an overhaul closing said window for now :)

It isn't too hard to code a site to deal with it, though. Just throw a unique ID in the form, and only let a form be submitted w/ that ID once. I hope financial sites and such do that, at least...

Or, in forums, do a 'SELECT COUNT(*) WHERE body = $body AND threadId = $threadId AND username = $username' before saving it (or something) to see if it's a duplicate.

Mozilla for OSX is pretty good, but still a bit wonky, and sloow as sap, much slower than IE5.

I found Mozilla for Mac pretty fast on 8.6 -- faster than IE 5.1 on some things (long pages of mostly text, for example).

I know, I'm using a dead OS....

really mozilla seems faster than ie to me, people say different things everywhere i go though, it's weird. some people say chimera is fastest... it seems fishy. i am on a very slow connection...

Yeah, I wonder if all the speed differences have to do with OS/processor combinations. I recently wiped my HD clean and reinstalled everything fresh, so it shouldn't be some issue with my file structure... Hmm.

Just found out tonight that after installing Netscape 6, Moz 1 hangs at launch (Mac OS 10.1.5). I'm sure I just need to re-install Mozilla since they must be sharing an outdated resource or something, but man, what a huge pain.

Sorry, just needed to vent that and this seemed like an appropriate thread for it. As you were.
