|Summary||0032558: Updates lost - save uncommitted updates using web session storage?|
Sometimes updates are lost when you submit them after a long period apparently idle (actually just working out what to write).
I first tried mantis out many years ago and liked it.
I have recently started a new job where Mantis is in use and it has the same issue.
Web applications created more recently do not have this problem.
I believe this is typically handled using html5's session storage. See for example:
Note local storage is a potential security risk but session storage should not be.

This a known and long-standing problem with MantisBT, which has been reported many times in the past.
Unfortunately, as mentioned in 0026608:0063541, there is no easy fix for it, so as a workaround I can only recommend to increase the PHP session lifetime for now.
Interesting suggestion to use HTML5 session storage instead of PHP's, but not sure it's practical as it would likely involve a major refactoring of how Mantis as it's almost exclusively server-based scripts today.
I'm closing this as duplicate of 0025692.
