Auto Save in editor randomly breaks Answered

This is been going on for a few weeks, Ill be typing away and the auto save will kick in and then just keep spinning. Once it starts I lose all  of my text or photos etc. The only work around it is, to copy all my text, shut down the editor reopen it and paste it back in..... if i notice it not saving. It does it randomly but once it spins longer than 5 seconds or so, it just keeps going.
Im using a mac book with firefox 43.0.4

anyone else having this problem?

Did it show up ever? I've noticed a lag between publishing and when an instructable is accessible, which typically lasts about 15 minutes.

This is still happening, it seems to happen when I finish one step and then side over to the next step, Ive tried a couple of internet connections, the slow one definitly make the problem worse
