When editing topic edit mode is left on any loss of focus
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; de; rv:188.8.131.52) Gecko/20070914 Firefox/184.108.40.206 Build Identifier: ChatZilla 0.9.78.1 [Firefox 220.127.116.11/2007091417] When I want to edit the topic of a channel, any click outside the editing line results in a loss of what i edited before / loss of focus.. Its prolly intended t prevent one from accidently editing. Maybe protect the edit with confirmation box instead. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
I think a confirmation box would be really annoying. If you mistakenly click in the topic as an op, it should be easy to "undo" that operation. Unless there is a better proposal for alternative UI I'm very tempted to WONTFIX this.
A modal dialog or anything else which affects focus is out, as we'd have to start playing complicated games with tracking focus and why it left the textbox and such. A possible compromise: on loss of focus, leave edit mode only if no changes have been made to the text. If you've edited it, you need to press Esc with the topic textbox focused to cancel it. Something like that might work, but the discoverability of Esc is low, so needs work.
We could have a Cancel button next to it?

Ever confirmed: true
The only thing I'm not really happy with is that the cancel button still wraps at smaller window sizes, but I don't see a straightforwards CSS way to fix that.
