ScribeFire ate my post

Published by at 6:22 am under Blogging

I love ScribeFire, but ever since the last upgrade it’s been eating half of my posts. I finally got sick of it and opened a bug ticket, but it’s been very frustrating to write a 3-5 paragraph post, publish it to the blog and see that only one or two of the paragraphs made it to the site. Sometimes what I write the second time is better than the first draft, but more often my frustration makes the second draft worse or gets the post scrapped all together.

Is anyone else out there experiencing similar problems? Is it because I haven’t upgraded Firefox on my main computer to FF3.0 yet? Or is it just a PEBCAK problem? (Problem exists between chair and keyboard)

PS. ScribeFire tried to eat this entire post, but I was too wily for it and copied the whole thing before posting it. Now to try a second time and see what happens. I think it has something to do with changing tabs in the right hand window of ScribeFire, but I’m not sure.

    Experiencing the same problems but I had blamed it on WordPress…

    Hopefully they get it fixed soon cause it is a really great tool when it works…

    fwiw, I usually write in notepad/textedit (depending on platform) and then copy the text into the blog editor to publish, ensuring the publish time is closest to reality, and to compensate for anything like the sitch you describing screwing things up… :)

    Very strange; we’re thinking it’s somehow related to Firefox 3, but we’re working on determining exactly what’s happening here.

    It’d be cool if it was FF3, but I’m still using FF2 on the system in question. I’ve upgraded to FF3 on my secondary systems, but until Tab Browser Plus or an equivalent is produced for FF3, I probably won’t upgrade.

    Hopefully you find the source of the problem soon, ’cause I really like ScribeFire and I’d hate to have to find an alternative.
