Hello folks... Curious to know if this is something affecting my PCs only, or anyone else seem this.

I have a laptop with IE9, and just received a Lenovo desktop which I obviously upgraded to IE9... The thing is that sometimes when entering a reply in the Quick Reply box (the text only box under the forum replies) the cursor seems "stuck" and won't move when I press the arrow keys within the box.

The funny thing is that the position seems to actually change, because if I start typing the new characters will appear where I'd expect the cursor to be after the movement - it's just the cursors not moving on screen.

This happens in two different machines for me - it could be some add on I have on my systems for example...

This problem doesn't happen in a full reply, where the rich text editor (TinyMCE) is in use.

This has happened 4 times to me over the last week on Firefox on Windows 7.

Not sure why it happens as it isn't all the time. Probably one of my add ons causing a problem but can't think of one that would do this.

I've had this in a different webapp on Windows 7 (in Firefox). I never had the issue under XP.

Edit: I don't post to Geekzone from Windows so I haven't run into the issue here.

I have the same issue with IE9 on Geekzone. I just carry on typing even tough the cursor is not visible and whenever I click anywhere else in the text box and start typing, the text I typed is there in the end so don't mind it too much.




Do whatever you want to do man.
