My text box goes wonky at the bottom

Postby Beautiful Soup » Sat May 01, 2010 4:01 pm

Hello :) I'm having a problem with my text box. When I reach the bottom it fails to scroll down and I can't see what I'm typing. It just bounces up and down between the last visible line and the next one.

Can anything be done?

(And is it the same thing as saying, "My bottom goes wonky at the text box" :p)

This used to happen to me. If you're using Internet Explorer put it in "compatibility mode" for a temporary solution.

Unfortunately this is a bug in Internet Explorer 8, so not something I can fix myself.

I'll see whether I can implement a workaround, however the best way to deal with it for now, is indeed switching to compatibility modus, which means making your browser pretend it is IE7 in stead of IE8 :-(

Thanks Lenny :)

I tried writing in compatibility mode earlier, and it worked fine. (If I've got a lot to say, I'll try to remember to switch it on :p)

Just don't switch it on after you've typed otherwise you'll be back with nothing in the text box!

With the sort of things I'm liable to say, that may be no bad thing! (:-O :p
