    Still strange, we tried out the new reply stuff in IE. 7 or 8?

    That's weird. Mine has done it a few times in the last few minutes as well. I'm using IE8.

    So strange. I just tried it on our Windows VM, which is also running XP with IE8, and it's working fine...

    Does it happen on longer posts, perhaps?

    the reply box will only show the last 2 lines of text and with my propensity to typo; i try to go back and fix things but where my cursor is doesnt show in the reply box, just the last two lines or so... and yes; londer posts are a major bogg on the system

    Ah, actually, I do know about that bug, unfortunately. IE in particular insists on scrolling the text box back down to the bottom when you are not typing at the very end.

    Mine's fine now, it only did it for a few minutes, mainly while on the immature post. (LOL) I hope you can get yours working properly amistre. :)

    Yeah, there's not much we can do about IE's abysmal Javascript performance, unfortunately.

    You're welcome. I'm having the same problem with the script. LOL It makes me feel like I'm typing too fast for my computer's brain to keep up. :/

    Eh. Had to ipban those bastards. Yeah, that sucks :( I actually have to look and see if there's any way that we can speed up typing specifically in IE. There's one thing we may be doing that's causing more trouble than it's worth at the moment.

    I mean, the upside is, it no longer sucks to use equations because the preview doesn't jump anymore, and in everything *except* IE, neither does the text box :p

    Shadow, thank you for getting rid of them, and it looks like I'll be downloading Firefox, unless you can suggest something better. :)

    Firefox or Chrome should both do fine. Firefox 4, the latest version, may be having some issues with math rendering, if I remember correctly, but we'll be switching to the latest version of our math library soon and that should take care of it, I hope.

    Whoa. Really? That's a funky one. I'm guessing that *wasn't* IE that time? Maybe you accidentally zoomed the page?

    Well, if you accidentally zoomed you'd just have to Ctrl-0 or Ctrl-1 depending on the browser.

    BOOM! The live preview is actually entirely client-side, so internet speed is irrelevant :)

    Not unlikely at all. Again, IE is abysmally slow in many things, including DOM manipulation, which is what previews, fading, and posting are all about.
