Hey guys, I'm using Electrum v2.7.18. Yesterday I got some bitcoins and transferred them to my electrum wallet, without problem. I tried sending them to another wallet, and it stayed unconfirmed for a few hours which it usually does for me, so I checked again in 3-4 hours and the transaction was missing from History tab in Electrum, and all my BTC's were back...

Now I tried resending them, and the same thing happened again. Now it's the day after and I've tried to send them again, it's unconfirmed and when I check it out on block explorer it has some kinda warning about it being a double spend...?
So I'm obviously a BTC noob, and I'm clueless here... I'm positive I sent it to the correct address, I payed more than the recommended fee (I think, it was at least minimum) so I'm really lost here guys...

9f5970adc4fdf3c09bfbe1b6217397a60bc6ed67cc8f8e610b65172692fa9469 is the transaction ID, I figured the addresses aren't needed. Happy to post them if it helps.

Thanks!  Cheesy

The block explorer has likely not dropped your previous transaction when you are checking it. If the replacement transaction has propagated(seen by the block explorer), you are fine and it should confirm if it has sufficient fee.

When the transaction "drops" and "disappears" from your wallet, it does not necessarily drop or disappear from the mempools of all nodes. Some nodes and block explorers will still remember the transaction. When you go to send again, those nodes and block explorers remember the first transaction, and because you sent again, you technically have created a double spend transaction so block explorers will mark the transaction as such.
