On this question, if I go to edit my answer and then click "cancel" beside the submit button, the title of the question changes to

"If (a2n)(a_n^2) converges to 00, then (an)(a_n) converges to 00"

However, the math in the question itself still renders correctly.

I am using Firefox 5.0.1 on OS X 10.6.8.

  • $\begingroup$ This "doubling up" seems to happen in all questions that contain math in the title on cancelling an edit. $\endgroup$

Indeed, the title wasn't reset to the correct LaTeX source when cancelling. This is fixed in the next build of the site.

  • $\begingroup$ It did indeed, a few minutes ago. $\endgroup$
