As a result, adding e.g. new comments reverts the changes someone else has made to these fields. This can result in banning innocent people for messing with the fields. See: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=601081#c4 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=607722#c12 Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a bug 2. Have someone else change e.g. the severity 3. Reload without bypassing cache Actual Results: -Fields do not update -When you post a comment, the values of the fields revert Expected Results: Fields should update without bypassing cache.
Why do you think people are getting banned over this? Anyway, don't ever use reload/refresh alone. Either click the bug # at the top to reload the page, or you can do shift+reload. Do you ever get a mid-air page? If so, what do you do?
Banning for repeatedly messing with the fields seems quite likely. Sometimes I get the mid-air page (but not after refreshing), and I press cancel.
