Posting Problems
« on: February 21, 2011, 06:42:51 am »
Is anyone else having problems with their browers and the posting page?

I use IE and lately when I am typing in the text window, things go along fine until I have written enough to fill about a window and a half.  If I write any more,  the window starts bouncing.

You know how when you type, whatever you last typed is what is showing on the screen.  It isn't doing that.  Everytime I type a letter the window bounces up back up to the middle of the "document".  When I type the next letter it momentarily shows the last line I wrote, but then quickly jerks back up to the center.  When I stop typing I cannot see the bottom of what I wrote.  It's almost like somewhere in the top or middle section is locked and screen must show that.

I know this isn't making sense, but if it is happening to you, then you'll know what I am talking about.

But I don't have this problem on my Droid.

Run a virus scan and a malware scan in safe mod.  IE is known the picking up bugs that make stuff quirky.  If that doesn't help, try a system restore to a date just before it started happening..  Something might have been installed to make it do this.

It's been happening to since 2007!  I was wondering if I was the only one this happened to...  I thought it was the PC I was working from but it's happened from different machines in many different locations, so it must be the browser itself...

It has been going on for like six months or so.  I just finally got annoyed with it enough to ask.  Sometimes i type my stuff in wordpad/notepad then paste it into the reply window.  I have run virus scans many time, so if it is that, it is sneaking pass.
