gmail harmless error message when editing settings: “Your changes have not been saved. Discard changes?”

Posted by jpluimers on 2010/01/28

When you edit your gmail settings, recently you often  get this message if you move the focus away from the settings pane:

Your changes have not been saved.
Discard changes?

The odd thing is that the settings are indeed saved just before you move the focus away.

So I always wondered if the message can be really ignored, and this thread confirms the message indeed is harmless.

I do still wonder why I get this message mostly in FireFox and Internet Explorer, but almost never in Chrome :-)
