When I save my translation and am about to move to the next box, the
previous strings I have just translated disappear. This causes me to
translate the same strings again from the scratch. Also, at the same
time, all of the boxes in the target language in the page go blank. I
cannot see the translated strings unless I click into them or go
to next/previous page and come back the page where I was.
Translation is saved and shown in the target language.
This bug was discussed at the beginning of the meeting on 22th of November 2011 with Zanata and Translation teams.
Sam Friedmann has also encountered the same problem.
Need more info on how to reproduce the problem.

The attached URL is the one I was using when this problem occurred.
What happened was when I saved my translation and was about to move to the next one, the right-hand side of the page went blank and my translation was lost.
The problem does not always occur so I guess if you keep tying, it will happen some time...
Any ideas on how to reproduce the problem, Sam?
I think all the info is there unfortunately.
Basically, the last translated string disappear and we have to re-translate it.
It happens quite randomly and I haven't noticed any specific action that could be linked to it. But it does happen at least a once every hour.
Suspect bug might be link to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=756293. Need intensive manual test by tester.
Looks like the following steps can be tried to possibly replicate this problem:
1. Login to Zanata, choose a project, select a file with atleast 2 pages and start translating the first page
2. Somewhere before the last string of the first page, snap the network connection
3. Continue translating the strings on the first page
4. After translating the last string on the first page, move to the next page either with the keyboard keys or navigation buttons
5. Go back to the previous page again
6. Check to see if the translations done after step 2 are still visible.
Did you encounter network disconnect when doing translation?
Or perhaps it acts like Bug 755764?
There is no network issue that I have noticed, also this can happen at any stage of the translation process (beginning, middle, or end the page...)
There is no network issue either for my case.
This seems similar to Bug 755764 but I think the difference is this problem happens randomly, not only when page pages.
Is this bug still exists in 1.4.3 (latest release)?
While I was working today, the bug did not occur at all. I don't know if this means it has been fixed in 1.4.3. I will report if it occurs again.
