    Text box scrolls up and down when full

    Postby Freakzilla » 21 Sep 2009 20:51

    When I fill up a text box when posting, it scrolls back up to the top after every keystroke, then back down for the next, back and forth. This makes long posts very difficult.

    This only happens at this site and only on my personal computer. Win XP, IE8

    Any ideas or suggestions?

    I don't think I've ever experienced that problem. Are you using Internet Exploder?

    have you tried changing the style for your profile? might be a glitch in the one your using, and needs resetting.

    I thought it said Win98... my fault.

    I would suggest not using anything involving a Windows product. But that's just me.

    I use Linux, Firefox, OpenOffice, and all those nice little built-in things for my laptop.

    Hey Freak I get the same thing and I'm using Internet Explorer, dunno which version though. I thought it was just the scroll function on my laptop screwing up, does that from time to time i.e. when I scroll down it goes up etc.

    It is an IE issue. I would suggest you switch to Chrome or Firefox, or you can Chrome your IE.

    You can read about it here....

    Yes, the problem was associated with IE, but I just don't see where any solutions were offered.

    What kind of help is that? :doh:

    You have too high an expectation or Conny's reading abilities. It will take at least a few more weeks before he will dump IE.

    Nah, I figure he'll stick with it, despite its obvious flaws, out of stubbornness.

    That's what he does with McDune, after all. :P

    That still doesn't make an excuse for you previous post dimwit. The one where you don't get what the solution is.

    I got it, I posted for clarity, and to provide the specific link for the Chrome Frames for IE that may fix the problem.

    I also get that you are just being an ass to be an ass. :naughty: :naughty: :naughty:
