I've just noticed Lounge upvotes disappearing. There's no indication that they've been cancelled by downvotes or any obvious reason why anyone whould downvote in this case, just messages that were green including 1 I upvoted now appear to have no votes at all. Poking around I can get the vote to appear and the message colour changes when I click on it so I guess its just a failed update pass on the page refresh. Might be nice to get a retry on that.

Thanks for saying that, but I getting caching fixed is very high on my list. I'm (rightly) embarrassed about our kinda lame caching. It's only, you know, the most effective form of optimisation and improved user experience and all that...
I was editing a reply a few minutes ago when suddenly the editor completely stopped responding. I couldn't type, couldn't insert a smiley, couldn't change the cursor position with either keys or mouse, couldn't select text with CTRL-A (didn't think to try this with the mouse). I initially thought the tab had locked up and opened a new one to retype my message in; but it stalled on loading for a minute or two (chronic issue with my connection at work). When the new reply tab finally did open I was able to edit the original again.
I'm assuming something in your preview script is misbehaving and doing blocking network IO instead of working asynchronously and being properly web 2.0 buzzword compliant.
This happened using FF13 (again blame my employer for the obsolete version).
Edit: This seems vaguely familiar, I'm thinking it's something I found and reported when the feature was first enabled; but trying to find the original would be more trouble than it seems worth now.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
