Jumping up and down in the typing frame!

Am I the only one to suffer this? Is it a Vista thing or what?

On posting, when the typing box becomes full it refuses to remain scrolled down, so when the box is full of text from a quote or just mad typing, only the text which initially fills the frame remains in view - until you strike the keyboard then it jumps madly up and down between the character being typed and the top of the post making it impossible to type a coherent sentence....... I've given up-literally seconds before I launch this machine through the window.

The previous post was submitted in IE, I just thought I would give it a go on Firefox, may try Safari next!

Interestingly it doesn't seem to be happening with Firefox, must be an IE thing?

Are you using IE8?. If so, click on the compatability icon next to the refresh at the top.

It's the way the site was coded and not Vista, it is out of date, needs an upgrade.

Bloody hell! I think that's the first time I've ever had an IT solution which solved the problem I had rather than the one the IT guy had read on his geek forum that day and just had to show off about!.

Never had the problem you describe. Running XP with IE7.

I did try updating to IE8 which caused me problems immediately so I had hours of fun rolling back my confuser to its out of the box state and reinstalling my software and backups.

Sorry about the delay in looking in to this. It is (another) Internet Explorer 8 bug:

https://connect.microsoft.com/IE/feedback/ViewFeedback.aspx?FeedbackID=432377

Because of this and the fact that MS are on the case I don't want to bust a gut trying to work around it, but I have tried to make your IE8 automatically go into IE7 compatibility mode when using RR Navy theme so you may find it's fixed, although not for me when I test.

Meanwhile I'll annoy the hell out of you with the standard cry - use Firefox! I know some don't have the permissions to install it on work PCs but for those who do, you know it makes sense :)
