Can't see long posts when I type - scrolling issue
02. Aug 2010 at 21:04
 
When I am trying to edit or write a long posting (or where there is a long quote at the beginning of my post) and the overall length exceeds the default size of the text box for writing the post, the box keeps scrolling up every time I enter a character or hit return so that I can't see what I'm typing.
 
Anybody else having this trouble?  Maybe it is an IE problem?

Windows XP SP3 + Internet Explorer 8 (8.0.6001.18702)
 
But the same thing happens on my home computer which is Windows 7 and I don't know which version of IE.

Just confirmed that the problem does NOT happen when I use safari on the XP machine.

This appears to be a problem with IE 8. No surprise there then! Grin I have changed the forum to default to IE8's Compatibility View, that will fix the issue.
