Can't see whole reply box

This may be covered farther down the board but I only have a few minutes left to write. Started having a problem today where I click on reply (on the OP message) and a only a small composition window opens. If I tyope for than 3 or 4 lines I am typing over the post below and can't see what I'm typing. When I hit post reply I can see the whole message and can then go back in and edit it, but this is pretty annoying. FYI- this is on Internet Explorer, PC, XP Pro.

  1. The same thing happened to me earlier, however this reply box seems to be okay.

    1. I think Chowhound is having a problem with IE. It happens to me when I used IE 7, but not when I use Firefox.

      1. having the same problem. Using IE.

        1. Its happened to me sporadically for 2 days, on this post (right now) & homecooking - greenbeans.

          1. Get the damn thing fixed. I'm having the same problem.

            Even on this board. My stopgap solution is to write and post my first line and then edit.

              I find that when there are a lot of posts on a particular thread, the last post gets cut in half and I can never read the entire thing. Then I scan down beyond the red part to see the post continued.
              Am I doing something wrong?
              Is there maybe a second page I am unaware of?
