Cursor / Mouse loses "Focus" when editing post
- CFByrne Jan 8, 2012 05:25 AM
After I've written any new copy in either a new post or reply... (I think especially in a reply)
I cannot simply click anywhere in the text and have my cursor move there.
I have to double click on a word - which then gets focus - delete it, and then type in what I wanted.
I am on IE9 on Windows 7 with all latest updates etc. Have seen this for months now.
This has been happeneing to me since mid-February ( http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/834048 ). It is now, and has been, unique to Chowhound.
The "workaround" is that the cursor still "exists", it's just not visible. Mouse and keyboard movement commands work, you just don't see the cursor. So you have to constantly highlight and re-highlight some part of the text to see where the cursor is at any given moment. So far it's only happening to me when I edit posts, not when I post them initially, so it's not the end of the world, just an on-going pain in the ass.
