Text box automatically scrolls up when typing each letter.
« on: February 01, 2012, 09:55:52 PM »
When I type in the text box provided in this forum when I am replying to a post or sending a PM the scroll bar automatically scrolls back up to the top.  Once you fill up the box with text and the scroll bar shows up on the right it automatically, after every keystroke flickers back to the top.  So when i type a letter, the screen goes to the bottom of the text.  As soon as the letter show on screen it automatically scrolls back to the top of the text box.  

Whats going on with this?  Is anyone else experiencing this?  Is there a way to disable this from happening?  

Thanks,
James

if you are using IE, go to tools and check compatibility  view.  see if that helps.

Kathyp,

I just love you.
Not only are your political views spot on :-D, but your also great at tech help and beekeeping too. 

That evidently was the problem. 

Thanks,
James
