    IE 8.0

    So - I upgraded the home machine to IE 8.0 and now when I try to reply to long posts, the text window jumps all over the place.

    Any advice (outside of "Go back to IE 7" or "Get Firefox") for fixing that?

    =Z=

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    by text window jumping, do you mean the cursor switches places?
    I've had that issue on my moms laptop before, where you'd start typing and all of a sudden you're now typing in the middle of your post.
    I really have no idea what might be the case.
    I googled it, and it seems its just a bug with IE8, however a solution recommended was try switching to compatability mode.
    I don't konw how to do that, since I don't use IE, but I don't imagine its too hard to figure out.

    Outstanding, dude.
    The compatibility mode switch did the trick.
    Thanks for the help!

    no prob.
    I'm not sure what else compatability mode does, but I guess you'll find out eventually.

    its not the end result, but how you get there.
    I find Firefox much less of a hassle than IE.
    but to each their own I guess.
    I've started using Chrome a bit too, takes some getting used to, but it seems pretty decent as well.

    Re: IE 8.0

    Awhile back I went to IE 8 and hated it.
    So I downloaded IE 7 again and used that.

    Then my eyes were open to Firefox.
    I love it!
    It is way faster and much more secure.

    Most of my family and friends have made the switch as well.

    Re: IE 8.0

    IE8 is the best browser out there.
    Firefox laid a HUGE egg with Firefox 3.5 - it indexed on every startup, making it take up to 30 seconds to open.
    It is better now with a patch, but still...

    I have Firefox, IE 6 (through a hack), IE 7, IE 8, Safari, and Chrome all installed on my computer at work for work reasons.
    I was always a firefox fan, but now IE8 is by FAR my favorite.
