jumping text solution
« on: June 01, 2010, 10:24:04 PM »
i think someone else had this problem.  i thought it was just on this site, but now it's happening to me on other sites also.  type about 90 words and then the text doesn't move down as i type.  it just jumps in the same spot and i can't see what i'm typing.

there must be a fix, but i have not found it.

windows vista home premium, IE8.

have not remembered to check on firefox to see if it's  happening there too.

More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Have you tried compatibility view: It's the first button to the right of the address bar - to the left of refresh page?

worked for one post.  Thanks!!!!

jim, if you do it, save your text first.  switching will cause you to need to start your post again.
