Jumping text?
Apr 30th, 2010 at 8:18am
 
When I am writting longer posts if I go lower then what the box shows then it starts "jumping" it'll show the text I right then go right back up every time I press a key. It does not matter if I try scrolling down, it'll just go right back. This gets rather anoying after a while, is this somehting only I'm experincing or does this happen to everyone?

Same happens to me. I haven't paid attention if it is always or just sometimes.

not a clue - but it does look like the same bunch that have the pop up box problems.

One thing I have learned over the last 20 years fixing computers - 90% of the time it's user installed software that's the problem.

Maybe it is from my refusal to update InternetExplore, or that I use InternetExplore instead of FireFox. The world will never know (Cause I won't update IE or switch to FireFox  Tongue).

well it's sensible to not update IE - but why don't you want to switch to firefox ?
the only practical difference from  a users point of view is that favourites become bookmarks.

Other than that you'll notice everything's much faster and generally more reliable.

The thing about firefox is that its quality is dependant on the applications you've installed for it. For a similar browser without having to deal with finding an app that does what you need, try Opera (my favorite for its simplicity), Chrome (very similar to Opera, but I haven't used it much), or a little known browser called Maxthon (it has the best parts of IE and Firefox crossed together).

ive switched computers now from a laptop to a pc now so its stopped, but i dont know why
