I have more than one time lost what I was typing because I accidentally hit the side bar and was then sent to ATS news videos. I know I am not the only one this has happened to. I have lost a thread I was starting and various posts...and after that I didnt feel like re-typing it. Why dont you have it where it doesnt delete it when you get re-directed...
I'm not sure ATS can do anything about the problem of losing a post when you accidentally navigate away from it. (It is infuriating - I remember it well.) There is a solution, though. Use a Mac. You just navigate back & hey, presto, it's still there!
Perhaps expensive just to solve the issue, but worth considering when it comes to replacing a curent setup.
The cheapest way is to get a second-hand machine, or go for a Mac mini. Alternatively, if you've got kids or work in education, go to the Apple store in your country & check out the discounts available via the 'Education Store', linked from the left of the homepage.
You'll never regret it.

There's a much cheaper (it's free) way, use Opera.
I just have to navigate back (either by using the back button, the keyboard or mouse gestures, my favourite way) and everything is as it was when I left that page.
