Change to the Thread/Post Title Box?

sounds kind of esoteric, but bear with me....

every time you post a new topic or response on the desktop version of PF, and do not use the 'quick reply' option, one of the fields you can complete is 'Title', be it for a new thread or just the next post in an existing thread...

until a couple of days ago, the 'Title' field stored a number of my previous titles in an ordered hierarchy - ordered from the most commonly used to the least...

recently, however, this field no longer holds/stores my previous responses and I have to enter that field every time if I so choose to use the field.....




anybody else notice this?

Is it not just a result of cached / historical data being cleared?

I thought the same thing, but emptying browser cache on this end did nothing to empty that field storage here...

additionally, the Title field currently does not store any data/responses for me at all....

That functionality depends entirely on your browser. Do you have auto-fill/form history disabled?

no - I have it enabled (I'm using Chrome) and it works in proper fashion on other websites....

I'll clear my cache and see if that changes the behavior here....

I've looked at all the settings in Chrome - no answers there; additionally, the fill-form works everywhere else...

That's strange. If it helps, know that we haven't made any changes to the site...
