Refresh page on adding test results

Hi there,

Our testers are working with multiple windows side-by-side (TestRail and software under testing). And sometimes they think they are refreshing software under testing (by using F5 button), when the focus is on the TestRail window instead, and the whole result is gone. It’s very annoying for them.

Is it possible to give a message like “Are you sure you want to refresh this page? All results will be lost.” when you try to refresh a page during adding test results or editing a test case?

Does anyone else experience this issue?
