Posting a lot here on City-Data Forum, I have a habit of hitting "Back" to get back to the list of my subscribed threads. If I just submitted a posted and a want to back up to the subscribed threads, I get a "Confirm Navigation" warning even though I have already saved my post.
Is there a way to disable this?

If I understand what you are saying you are going "back" past the "submit a post screen" where you typed and then submitted your post. CD programming isn't tracking whether you have submitted the post in the event you do so. As far as it knows you have just typed your post and hit the back button.

I don't think you will get rid of it. What you can do is right click the back arrow on the toolbar and choose the subscribed page from the list.

Yes, I am sure there are several workarounds. I didn't get this using Firefox. I may just have to change habits but still wondering if there's a box to check or uncheck or somthing.

I just typed this in, hit the back button, and got the confirmation message. I'm using FF 16.0.2

A simple solution is to place a link to the subscription page on your bookmarks toolbar and use it instead of multiple back button clicks.

I believe that this is a newer feature of the forum, not of the browser. I started noticing it a while back whenever I started to post something, and then closed the tab after deciding not to post.

Agreed, it's designed to prevent you from accidentally navigating away while you're in the middle of typing a post.
