After the Session Data error message appears ("Sorry! We could not process your edit due to a loss of session data. Please try again.") when attempting to save an edit, and an edit summary is entered, the software then assumes that the edit summary is blank, or unmodified, as the "edit summary not entered" reminder appears WHEN retrying the save. This has happened at least twice to me today, so it is not a one-off problem. This problem does only appear to occur when the session data is lost. This bug occurs on the Edit page screen, and I am using Firefox 3 Beta 2, but I have also tested this with Firefox 184.108.40.206, which is a stable release of Firefox. Instead of appearing with the blank edit summary message, I would expect the software to see that I have in fact entered an edit summary, and continue saving the page after I click the save button.
