Not saving changes in Mac OSX

I'm having a recent problem where I'm updating HTML, looking at the page in a browser just fine. Then suddenly changes i start making aren't showing up in the browser. When I close Textastic and re-open it, I notice that the recent changes (the ones I did NOT see in the browser) are gone from the text. However, this seems to fix the problem in that I'm now able to make more edits and they start showing up and autosaving again.

The issue just reappeared and attached is the photo of the console. Note that at 10:44pm I made some edits, switched to my browser and noticed that the changes were not showing. So that is when I notice the error. But at that time nothing in the console said "Textastic". Then I closed Textastic CMD+Q and reopened it at 10:46, and only then did I see a "Textastic" based item in the console.
Where is the problematic file saved? Is it in Dropbox?
Did you reload the file with Cmd-R in Safari and it didn't show the changes?
Regarding reloading, yes, my workflow is:
- make edits to code in Textastic
- switch to chrome, reload page
- make more edits
- reload page
Most of the time it works just fine, but every once in a while it stops saving edits. I then have to quit Textastic and reopen it (and when I re-open it, the last set of unsaved edits I made are no longer there in Textastic).
If a file changes on disk, Textastic should reload the changed file when it is activated.
My files are just on the local filesystem (I don’t have Dropbox installed), but they are also typically in git repositories. I’ll keep an eye out for anything else that might help nail this down.
Often when I edit a file and close the Textastic window or tab, changes are not saved. Most of my files are in iCloud folders or my local Google Drive folder which is also synced to the cloud. I've gotten in the habit of manually saving before closing, and this always works.
