User edits his last comment, gets "composer was opened without a draft key"

(Lars) #1

One of my users use an iPhone and Safari. When he tried to edit his posts he gets the message “composer was opened without a draft key”.

Some specifics according to himself:

If I try to edit a comment and it happens again, I’ll keep you informed. It actually has happened 5 or 6 times. However, let’s say I go up to another comment in the same thread, I have no issues with editing previous comments. Only happens on the last comment I have made in the thread. Weird!

Link to thread:

I’m on v1.3.0.beta3 +19 (GitHub - discourse/discourse at 399418e1ff186651cedb3044f7d807b8105e670f)

Weird, we have not seen this one in ages. We have seen tremendous amounts of problems with latest builds of safari on ios so it may be related.

I will have a look to see if there is any extra protection we can add.


Has happened to me too on Chrome beta 42 on Android on meta. I was also editing a comment or so, I can’t quite remember.

Can you work out a repro on try, an exact repro would make it easy to solve

I suspect it is some kind of new regression, we have not seen this in ages but I heard it reported on community.imgur as well recently.


I was able to reproduce it easily:

Create a new thread, editing this post works.
Reply to the OP, the page seems to reload a bit and the composer error pops up after tapping on edit.
This error pops up as many times as you hit the edit icon, reloading the site fixes this.

Post a reply to some comment and the same thing happens as above.

I tried replying to someone else’s comment but editing that works fine. Got the bug replying to an OP. Not sure.

So this is an android chrome mobile issue only right ?

(Jeff Atwood) #9

Possible, I believe the imgur report looked like Android Chrome to me as well.


Well, OP’s user had this bug appear on his Safari/iPhone.

Can anybody try to repro what I did but on Safari?
