Comment box jumping around
« on: April 21, 2011, 08:16:24 AM »
When I try to post a comment/reply of a length longer than the comment box which appears (so normally one would hit enter and more box would appear and one could keep typing) the comment box jumps up and down and doesn't allow me to see what I'm typing.  It seems to want to stay just in the original shape and keeps jumping back to the typing in the first part - I really hope that makes sense!

Does anyone have any idea whats happening or how to fix it?

Mine does that too. The box wants to scroll to the top of its contents while you're typing at the bottom.
Words mean things.

Yup.  Try running it in compatibility view.  (Click the torn piece of paper up by the address bar.)

Of course, this is for Explorer.  If you're in another browser, I got nothin'.  ;D

Yes, kitty-cat just told me this in the First World Annoyances thread

"For the posters with jumping boxes, have you just upgraded your IE? Click the "compatability mode" box up top and it'll stop"

What a relief!, I have so much to say I simply can't be confined to a small comment box :).
