I can't hit back..
I can't hit forward..
WHY!

So short story is i spent a good while typing out a descriptive list hit post to find out thread is locked now i can't save my message.
If there is a way to recover my message whatever method that may be, tell me!

Also page is still open but i can't hit back.
And i'm using firefox.

Checking out about:cache?device=memory
Am i doing this right? any advanced tips would help.

Have you tried going back to the page that your message was on via your browser history?

If that doesn't work...I think you may be screwed.

no, they go to the graveyard, unless you have an old url.

What list are you looking for?

It won't help this time, but for the future, you should consider installing either the Lazarus or Textarea Cache extension for Firefox.

Do i have to use the same methods which i don't fully understand right now using dreamweaver by unscrambling the links so firefox can read them again? if not i will definitely use those in the future.

If Firefox can't read those links there may be something wrong with your installation.

Clicking them should take you to the Mozilla page for the mentioned add on, and hovering over them should show the URL (so you can verify they don't lead to an unknown site).

This is without addons and simply going into about:cache?device=memory as i mentioned.
The way you stated your previous answer sounded like i was already screwed so i was explaining what i plan on doing "eventually" if it comes down to it.

Friend told me i can definitely get what i need from the grave just takes A LOT of work.
Finding the url under scrambled codes and the correct time etc.

One would think after you press enter your hardwork would be saved in cache, it's a little odd crunchyroll doesn't give you the option to back after a thread is locked because anywhere else i haven't had this problem.

Well, now's your chance to suggest this in the Feedback sub-forum if you'd like!

But yeah, one of the things I like to do if I'm typing a lot is to highlight everything and copy it first before posting (and maybe even paste it into a Word document just in case). It's saved my butt many a times on other forums!

Funny thing is i usually do this, but i also felt safe.. since ya know.. this has never happened before.
Had a pounding headache from focusing for a couple hours and dedicating myself to getting it finished.

I have a hard-time believing crunchyroll doesn't actually have this message.. it's a bit curious why they're not even helping me out with information how to recover because my friend who has experienced this before is telling me theirs a way just i don't exactly understand how to do it yet and i don't necessarily feel like researching on how to do this for hours while my membership ticks away. =/

But basically you go threw your cache look for the date grab the file that looks like your link, paste it in dreamweaver and do a few steps so you can use that link again.

Sounds easy.. but it's not if you don't understand.

Also said friend sent his computer in for repair today.
