@Jamie Band have you thought about asking a expert to help? We have many confluence instances with more than 50000 users and all work fine for us. Even with wild browser configurations. Did you make sure that your browser is in the supported plattform: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Supported+Platforms
And if yes has the right configuration paramerters: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRAKB/Browser+Troubleshooting+Guide
Do you have tried using a free trail of https://www.atlassian.com/ondemand/signup/?product=confluence.ondemand&unitCount=10 to verify if it is a problem with your installation?
Its likely an unfair question since I do not state what exactly is buggy. I started using Confluence a few days ago. Sometimes when I save pages, changes are not applied. When I create links to anchors they frequently do not save correctly. Perhaps, its something in my environment, but I found it difficult to get on with content creation.
I agree, I must edit with Confluence regularly, I always use the latest versions of Firefox, Chrome, and IE. Since the browsers are constantly changing, but our Confluence install remains static, the QA process doesn't really come into it. It's frustrating because I'm running into so many odd behavior that I don't have time to file a bug report. Built-in features like lists are very unpredictable when copy/pasting. There is no cursor/caret in Firefox and the bug is marked low priority. Page breaks in PDF Export are bizarre if code blocks are used. Cursor jumps around all over the place. Every browser has something wrong with it. It's not like Chrome is perfect; although, so far it's been the most usable.
Sorry, I can't agree with you. It happens on any browser, and typically when Confluence is hosted remotely over the Internet. Is there is a custom routine that tries to capture/manipulate characters when entering anchor text? I believe that this routine is causing characters to be skipped when there is a small amount of latency on network.
Probably the network then, rather than Confluence. I've had mostly decent experiences with Atlassian Cloud, but the fact is for some people, it is unutterably slow and painful to use. I've never got a decent answer as to why this is the case (other than latency as the servers are in the US)
I've had it occur on a variety of networks — but all from Australia. If there's an issue between here and there it may well be the network — but I can tell you that I don't encounter dropped characters from any other web application I use. It's only ever Confluence anchors.
