    Alright, now that I've been here long enough to have responded to some long posts with my own long posts, I'm running into a REALLY annoying problem. Whenever I fill up this text box making the scroll bar appear, it doesn't allow me to view anything outside of the original box without automatically springing back to the top. If I hold down the button on the mouse I can scroll down and look at the bottom, but if I let go of the mouse it automatically goes back to the top. If I'm trying to type something at the bottom, the cursor will stay there so I can type, but it automatically scrolls back to the top so I can't see what I'm typing. This seems like a really weird glitch and it's really frustrating to try to deal with! Has anyone else had this problem?

    Question answered, future questions can go in the tech thread linked below.

    You might be having compatibility issues. At the top of your window, where the URL is, there should be a little button that looks like a torn piece of paper. Try hitting that and see if your problem is solved.


    Also - we do have a tech request thread for quesions like this :)

    NYCitygurl's response should work if you are using IE8 as a browser. (I'm not sure on IE9 as I've never used it since it's not compatible with Windows XP.)

    Yup, it worked, infinite thanks NYCitygurl!!! And next time I have a question along these lines I'll find that thread you recommended.
