Did you turn on autosave in the first place? –  fredley Oct 24 '13 at 14:15

I am having the same problem on Google Chrome. My auto save was on and I have manually saved like 20 times at least. –  krikara Oct 24 '13 at 14:29
    
I tested this out on Chrome and had the same problem. I hit refresh a few times and eventually it worked. –  Sterno Oct 24 '13 at 14:34

@Batophobia Your game is saved on your local computer actually, in browser cache. –  3ventic Oct 25 '13 at 9:25

I had the same problem. I think it has to do with the way the site stores data locally. If you visited www.candybox2.net to play the game initially you cannot use the default load links to load the game. As far as your browser is concerned they are not the same site. You need to load http://www.candybox2.net/?slot=1 instead.

So, if you visited www.candybox2.net your slots are:

www.candybox2.net/?slot=1
www.candybox2.net/?slot=2
www.candybox2.net/?slot=3
www.candybox2.net/?slot=4
www.candybox2.net/?slot=5

If you visited candybox2.net your slots are:

http://candybox2.net/?slot=1
http://candybox2.net/?slot=2
http://candybox2.net/?slot=3
http://candybox2.net/?slot=4
http://candybox2.net/?slot=5

Another possibility is that you cleared your browser cache and the save was lost as a direct result. The game mentions a few things that will cause you to lose your save on its save page:

Choose text save if :
- You want to continue playing on another device or browser
- You want to share your save with someone else
- For some reason you want to empty your browser cache
(which will erase your local saves)

To keep your save you need to use the same browser (not in private/incognito), same device and not clear your browser cache. If you are changing browser or device, or clearing your cache, get the text save from the save page so you can later restore your save.
