Editor disappears Answered

Before the last update when I was in the middle of writing an answer I could leave the page to pick up a link or something like that then go back to the page pick "answer" and my answer would still be there.  Now the answer is gone. 

What changed?  Is there any other way than creating a new tab or window to do my research and still keep my answer going?

Using Firefox.

The forums are retiring in 2021 and are now closed for new topics and comments.

The same no-longer-existing feature also affects the way we used to beable to "move" comments within a thread.  If youwere replying to someone, you could click on REPLY somewhere else on the page and everything you typed would follow. That's no longer the case.

Clearly, this editor doesn't buffer your text the same way the old one did.

New tabs are your best bet, I think.  Keep in mind that the neweditor/markup parser is a completely different software package(CKEditor) than the old one (a hacked version of Wiki-formatting). You wouldn't expect such independent packages to have all identical features.
