Reply visibility problem

When i reply to a post the text in the box as i type does not scroll down as i am typing. So if my reply is more than four lines long i can no longer see what i am typing! If i hit reply and then go back and edit i can eventually fix errors but making the cursor stop in the right place is also a problem, it jumps around and skips lines

  1. Same exact problem here. The box is small enough to begin with and now this..

    1. ditto on my iPhone and on husband s droid

        I'm also on an iphone- no recent software updates or changes- this problem started a few days ago, was fine previously

          I've stopped updating everything my phone says is in need. I swear it just boggles down my phone even more.
          so no updates of recent for me either.
          and yes, it's been days now.

      2. seriously what is going on

        1. Mine did that today on my tablet with the Samsung browser. I switched to Chrome, which I usually use, and all is well.

          1. Can you see the little "arrowhead" or "triangle" made up of dots in the lower right corner of the reply box after you click on reply but before you start typing? If you can you should be able to place the cursor on that symbol, click on it and while holding down after clicking on it just go ahead and enlarge the reply box to as large as you want using your mouse or touch pad.
