Over the last few days, if I've had a post that was longer than the post window's size, the bottom most line wouldn't fit on the screen and the post window would jump to and from the bottom line with every character that I type.

What is this and how do I fix it?

Same here. Started noticing it about two months ago for me, but never really cared too much. I'm assuming it has something to do with an update?

To add to the posting mystery, for the past few months or so, every time I go to preview my post, it doesn't put the preview box above the editing window like it normally should; the editing window overlays the post and the preview window falls behind it all, so my text gets blocked out... very annoying when I'm trying to find any HTML errors.

Clever. It sucks that we don't see post puns nowadays as often as we used to.

I haven't had any posting problems. For reference, what browsers are those who are having problems using?

I'm using Internet Explorer.

I use Google Chrome now and Internet Explorer as a secondary browser.

I've noticed that in Chrome, but only when I add a big image or something to the post while I'm already on the reply screen. If I put the pictures in the Quick Reply box and hit preview from there, it works.

I haven't noticed any of these issues with Firefox, but sometimes have to use IE for other reasons.  I did have a problem with a Firefox beta, but that was resolved.

Thanks, hope this doesn't start some unbearable copy cat trend.

Well, at least we've got both ends of the spectrum now.

As if we didn't have enough examples already.

That was actually pretty witty. I wish that I'd had a picture like that handy.

A year from now the only posts on this forum are probably just going to be pictures. Topics will be a picture, with each reply being another, somewhat related picture.

Unless Deezer bans pictures.
