I was trying to edit the Gerard Smith RIP post, and I am able to bring up the editing window and make changes, but when I click the "Edit" button, it reloads the editing window and removes my changes.

I've tried in both Firefox 4.0 and Safari 5.0.4. Same result.

Yeah, same kind of weirdness for me. (Specifically for me it was in the One Question :: Gas Prices thread.)

Neither Preview nor Edit behaves properly.

I also noticed that my browser asked if I wanted to save my password for this site. That's not something that ever happens either!

Oh, sorry, that was my bad. If this post is edited, I've fixed it.

This has probably been asked before...

When you edit a post, you're re-directed to page 1, post 1, regardless of where your original post was. Is this deliberate? It's a very minor thing, I know, but would it be possible to re-direct to the edited post (the same way you're re-directed to a new post)?

I have to think it HASN'T been asked before, or I'd have fixed it by now.

I believe it should work the way you want it now. (If it takes you to the WRONG place, let me know and I'll give it another look.)
