I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this.

When I type in a post, everything works fine until I reach the bottom of the visible text box.

Then, once the text box starts to scroll down, it keeps bouncing around.

I type a line, and then it scrolls off the screen.

I scroll it back so it's visible, try to place the cursor in the line to fix something, and poof it scroll off the screen again.

I find it difficult to type a long post -- or fix spellng errors of which I make many.

Is anyone else having this problem?

I moved this post to here (Using the BBS)

Now read this thread: http://amfone.net/Amforum/index.php?topic=26654.0

and if you use Firefox, you shouldn't have this problem.

If you're using I.E. and you respond to someone's long post by quoting it, instead of starting your response below the quoted post, start it at the top of the quoted post. I just played with a long quoted post to respond to, and by adding my comments above the quoted message, I was able to get 50 plus typed lines there without any line bounce.

Again using, I.E., if you don't quote any previous message, and just type a message, there should be no bounce for a typical 10, 20, 40, 60, line old buzzard response. I just did one using I.E. and it was 62 lines with no bounce.
