Item8503: CSRF validation token consumed by mandatory field warning
Current State: Closed
Released In: 1.1.0
Target Release: minor
Applies To: Engine
When a user forgets to provide a required field she will receive a dialog saying so. Alas, the validation token has now been consumed. So going back in the browser as suggested and saving again will trigger yet another warning. That's probably a bit too much.

Agreed, it's too much. If potential data loss is involved, it's far too much; however you don't mention this; if not, then it's not Urgent but Normal. Also, do you have a suggestion how it can be overcome?

When saving from PatternSkin
(the default skin) the JS intercepts the save and tells you about the missing mandatory field. This is not a solution, but it does reduce the impact of this problem significantly, so I'm reducing the priority from Urgent to Normal. An adjustment to the wording of the "go back" message can further ameliorate the symptoms.
Note there is another issue that you may see when saving this way; Item8738
