Open a new FF window. Drag the titlebar and bring your mouse to one side of the screen. The window should take up half the screen space. Do the same to the other window (other side). More on this

then open the question in a new window, and tile the pages on your screen so they show up side by side. Are you on Windows 7(cos this is easy from Win7)

No, they appear in the "compose answer" box. Try it, start writing an answer for a random question. Wait a while (draft saving is every 30 seconds IIRC), close the page. Come back whenever you want, your half-written answer will still be there, at the bottom of the page in the answerbox. The same applies for questions, but you can have only one question draft at a time (since there's only one "ask question" page, but there are many pages with an answerbox)

comment solution of schrodinger equation - infinite solutions?
@DavidZaslavsky: For some reason I didn't get pinged for that. I'm rather shaky in QM, but I tried my best to write an answer that explained it at a different level than the others. Also: I have no clue what a quotient group is :/

You do know that answers are saved as drafts--you can write half an answer and come back later (to the same question) to improve it without submitting. Also, you can always open the question in another tab.

Uhh, don't do that, write a complete answer and then submit. Unless you've already written a sizeable chunk which self-sufficiently solves the problem, and leave a note that you will add more later.

comment Isn't the uncertainty principle just non-fundamental limitations in our current technology that could be removed in a more advanced civilization?
@PO'Conbhui the forest is a wavefunction, in which it may or may not exist. The inhabitants of this psuedoforest are part of the wavefunction. The event of a tree falling is also part of the wavefunction.

comment What is the support for the suggestion that reality is a computer simulation?
@Amazed: If you want, you can edit this question so that it(the actual question being asked) is distinct from the other one. Then someone will reopen it (you can speed it up by asking in chat)

@MitchellPorter: I've mentioned that it does exist as a wavefunction, but I clarified it anyway.
