When I am entering a question (in main), it often happens that debris, apparently from some previous question, shows up (in a kind of background typeface). Surely others have experienced this bug as well. Any hope for a quick fix?

    $\begingroup$ I am guessing it is the saved draft from an unposted question of yours. $\endgroup$

As Willie pointed out, this is an automatic drafts feature.

Allow questions to be saved as drafts prior to posting

In addition to what was said there, we support only one draft per question or answer per site. It is also cleared every time you successfully post a question or answer, respectively.
