    Default Forum Question?

    Sometimes when I want to post a new thread or just a general post this happens....

    I am taken to the next page/post screen but something weird happens. Sometimes, sometimes...there is the box that you typically type in. I can type in it, but there is no blinking cursor. Not even from the start. So you click in the box to begin your post, no blinking cursor. But you can type.

    However, when you attempt to return, the whole line that you typed returns downward like you have the cursor at the beginning of the line. Even though I DO NOT have the cursor at the beginning of the line.

    Imagine you have typed this line but never saw a cursor then hit return for spacing and the line just keeps dropping down. No cursor anywhere even if you look around for it with just the arrow keys.

    Happened multiple times.

    Mozilla Firefox if that helps.

    Thanks.

    Don't know but sometimes for me I type a post and then I want to add or change something in the middle and when I go back and click where I want to type the cursor blinks, but then when I type instead of pushing the following text along it deletes it one letter at a time as I type, so to save what I have typed I have to highlight and cut all the following text, make my correction or addition, and then paste the rest of the post back in. Sometimes if I don't get the spacing right or punctuation or whatever I have to do this multiple times to get it right.

    Never had your problem though.

    Cool

    THE COMPUTER DUMBY KNOWS!!!!!!!!!! On you key board you have a key that says insert. If you go back to insert a letter or a word and it erase the letter in front of where you are inserting anything just hit the insert key and start over.

    Insert key has doesn't help or cause it.

    This still happens by the way if anyone has any idea of what might be going on. It is happening in this post right now. I hit return after the first sentence and the whole sentence just started dropping down. So I just made one big sentence. No cursor either. This I can post, then go back and edit no problem. Cursor there and everything. This is the only Forum that I have been on that it occurs.


    Thanks.
