Formula refresh button issue

    I used to have a refresh button that when clicked will save the record and then open the record in edit mode. This button was using javascript below.

    "<a class='Vibrant Success' onclick=$('#RedirectURL').val(document.location.href.replace(/&rl=[a-z0-9]*/,''));$('[name=rl]').val('');$('#saveButton').trigger('click'); href='#'>Refresh</a>"

    An alternative is to use below

    var text rid = If([Record ID#]>0, ToText([Record ID#]), "%%rid%%");

    var text url = URLRoot() & "db/" & Dbid() & "?a=er&rid=" & $rid;

    "<a class=\"Vibrant Primary SaveBeforeNavigating\" data-replaceRid=\"true\" href=\"" & $url & "\">Refresh</a>"

    But, the issue is when you are editing a child record that is embedded in the parent and do not make any changes to the parent record the browser displays a pop up that "your changes may not be saved". Is there any alternatives to prevent the browser from displaying the popup and automatically save and open the record in edit mode (without using javascript).

    I noticed today that I was receiving that pop up in places where I never saw it pop up before I think that you should report this as a bug to the care team and see if they except it as a bug. It's quite possible it never used to behave this way.
