Cursor keeps skipping to the top when posting

When typing a post longer than the message box length, it starts skipping to the stop constantly whenever I stop typing for a minute, and in order to get back to the bottom I have to actually hit the down arrow rather than just scrolling down. It was driving me nuts before but after posting stuff for Sunday I'm now REALLY annoyed. Is this a forum issue or a me issue, and if it's a me issue, has anyone had this problem and been able to fix it?

It's the forums and it's been reported in Bugs and Glitches.

Same here. Maybe the old computers don't like the new forums? :p

That's my thought. I don't have any problems on either of my other computers; it's only when I'm at work and am on a computer that's running...XP, I think, that I have issues.

The rest of you - what's your OS?

Mine is still doing this, years later, and through more computers and operating systems, from whatever makes my iPad work, to my new desktop with Windows 7

If there is a fix for this, and I missed it due to bad eyesight and several long LoA's for medical issues, I am not bringing this up to annoy anyone, but if there is a fix I would appreciate the help, and because I think we are soon moving to new boards maybe the problem will go away by itself, and you wonderful technical people who keep this all going are welcome to put this on low priority, but if there should be an easy fix that makes no difference about the move to the new boards, a tip in English because I do not understand anything at all about computers, would be very appreciated.

Thanks so much, and do the big stuff first, because I am unimportant in the larger scheme whenever the boards start over. After that is done and everyone is happy, if someone in the know could send me a PM to let me know if I can post or send PM's longer than this one :hug

This issue makes me go :scratch

I won't be able to fix it without reproducing it, so if you can detail the exact steps, Twibli, that may help.

However, we'll be moved over in a few weeks, so if you can hang on that long :) I'm not sure if it's just an annoyance or makes posting impossible?

I wasn't seeing this error on the phpBB forums but now that we're in vBulletin, I'm getting it on almost every post. It happens randomly with the use of the backspace button. It won't delete the offending text, it'll just skip you back to the start of the post.
