Go to the download folder on your computer (this is default for saving .mid files from Musipedia) and sort the list by date. Then you should find the missing .mid file. Normally, the file name is a "random"-like line of letters.
Well, this is how it works when I follow your description.

Subject: How do you re-open a .mid file?
I made a tune in musipedia using the Javascript piano.

Then I pressed "search Musipedia"

Then pressed the little speaker icon at the end of the "Your search query:..." line.

This brought up a save dialog. So I saved my tune (as a .mid file). But now I want to re-open it so I can play it again or cut / paste the music line into the forum, but I can't see how to do this. Any help?

How to insert music:

Add a bit of sheet music, along with a MIDI file, simply by entering note names in Lilypond syntax between the [L] and [/L] tags.
For example, you can try what happens if you enter: [l]g'4 g'4 d''4 d''4 e''4 e''4 d''2[/l] (use the Preview function if you don't actually want to post this).
You can create these lists of note names by clicking on piano keys here.

How to post an audio recording:

If you just want to sing, whistle, or play a melody so that other forum visitors can hear it, follow these steps:

  1. Record your audio here.
  2. You should notice a 32-character hash code, something like: 2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf
  3. copy this hash code and paste it into a forum post, enclosed in the audio tags, for example: [audio]2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf[/audio]

How to mark a thread as solved:

If the original question in a thread is solved, please mark it as solved using the "solved" icon (or by just typing [solved] into your post). This makes life easier for people who are willing to identify melodies, since unsolved problems are easier to spot that way. If a problem turns out to not be solved after all, just write [/solved] in a new post, and the thread will be labeled accordingly.
