Default Type-scroll problem.

Whenever I try and type on tau online now, while I am typing, my message, keeps scrolling up and down in a frenzy. Is this a bug or just a problem on my computer?

Thnaks,

scar.

that happens to me - sometimes it depends how many characters you type, then it goes crazy its piss annoying :P

what i do to go around it is if i know that im doing a long or bulky message or forum then i just do it first in word/email/the like and copy and paste it into this thingo, otherwise i moan and groan bout it :P

It might be a problem with the internet browser that you're using. That kind of thing always happens to me whenever I'm using Internet Explorer, but the problem disappears whenever I use a different browser.

This is a forum bug that hasn't been able to be sorted out by FT. This bug appeared several months ago when the librarians were testing the new them, if you would like to avoid the aformentioned problem then click the expand button and the text box increases in size by about 3 lines (This doesn't work in reply, BTW) Basically, you should make the text box so there are no scroll bars on the sides

If you need a better description then I'm sure someone could write a better one.

Theo nly problem is, only V8 has it. If you type fast enough it will keep scrolling to where you are, so you should be able to still read it :P That's what I do. Or just try to type short posts :P

This problem is more easily solved by typing your post in a word processor, and then putting it into a post once you've finished creating your text

I've added the reply box expander to the rest of the themes now.

As for the scroll problem, I think it's a problem with Internet Explorer which I'm not sure how to fix
