I sometimes get an error on posting (usually when it's my first time posting since a site visit? But it's inconsistent even then, it only happens sometimes). I'll click submit and the page will refresh to a solid white screen. My post actually does go through, but when I press back my message will still be saved in the quick reply box.
May be a FireFox only issue too, I don't use Chrome.

I probably have too many old laptops.

I have the same/similar thing on chrome/firefox.
I post something and get an error, or a blank screen. if i refresh the blank page it will result in a double post.
if i just go back 2 pages (from the error or blank screen) and then refreshthe page, my post appears and no double post happens.

Every time i see double posts in the forum i exactly know what happened (posted , blank screen, hit refresh) 😁

Based on other phpbb forums I'm on, this feels exactly like it, just with some very heavy custom styling applied. I've seen forums using Invision, XenForo, SMF, and a couple others, and none of them match up to the feature-set here better than phpbb does. And they definitely did use phpbb back on the older forum styling from before the switchover.

Getting logged out all the time! I seem to be forced to re-logon to vogons every few days, more than any other website. Can we review the cookie settings that are being used to ensure they allow persistent login state?

I've never had to log in again ever since I joined. You might be inadvertently deleting a required cookie.
