Thanks David. I just tried this and it only seems to work if I go back to
the article via the tabs. Any other tab or link doesn't work. I've logged
so the team can check if this is
intended or not.
Have a good day,

Leave the editing mode "cleanly" -- saving,
navigating back to the
article via the tabs, following a sidebar link to another
escape, whatever. If you stop editing in a way that we can tell is
intentional, you'll be asked if you want to discard your changes, and if
you say that you do then it'll all get cleaned up. (We can't tell the
difference between "I deliberately closed this tab because I want to get
rid of this" and "I accidentally closed the wrong tab and I'll be very
upset if my changes are lost", unfortunately...)
If you want it to never autosave your changes, you
could disable local
session storage for the wikis you use at the browser level. But
have side-effects outside of VE.
We don't have any preferences that'd control
the autosave, and I don't
think that we have any current plans to implement
something like that.
