I'm referring to the "Are you sure you want to navigate away from this page?" message. It's meant to appear when you are moving away with unsaved changes, but here are a couple of places where I found the behaviour to be odd:

1. It appears when you click the "Preview" button on the "Edit signature" page.
2. It doesn't appear when you preview a post and then move away without submitting the post.

I'm guessing these should be easy to fix.

I have noticed these as well, I plan on getting around to fix them hopefully soon.

I know its been awhile since you posted about this, but finally had a chance to redo this area today. I double checked the conditions you mentioned and everything appears to working correctly now. Hopefully I am not missing any conditions. To sum things up here is how it should behave:

-No text entered in quick reply form, NO confirmation prompt period
-No text entered in regular post boxes, NO confirmation prompt period
-User clicks on any preview buttons and then tries to navigate away from the form instead of submitting it, there WILL BE a confirmation prompt
-Text entered in quick reply and user does not actually submit the form but instead tries to leave the page, then there WILL BE a confirmation prompt
-Text entered in quick reply box and then Post Advanced Reply is hit, and then the user navigates away from the page, then there WILL BE a confirmation prompt
-No text entered in quick reply box and then Post Advanced Reply is hit, and then the user navigates away from the page, then there is NO confirmation prompt
