Writing a reply ... paste text issue

When I write a reply and press return, the cursor jumps to the top of the text box and inserts a new line at the top of my text.

Not always, but very often.

What's wrong?


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

   I've seen that, too, but I thought that it might be my fault.  I'm
not sure how to reproduce it.

   Something different (but possibly related) bothers me.  I normally
edit a posting in an xterm, and then copy+paste text from there into
this forum's "Body" box.  The quirk is that successive copy+paste lines
are closer vertically than manually entered lines. For example:

Copy+paste line 1
Copy+paste line 2
Copy+paste line 3

Manually typed line 1

Manually typed line 2

Manually typed line 3

   I'm mystified by this difference.  In each case, arrow keys move the
cursor from line to line, not stopping at what look like the
intermediate blank lines.

    Another annoyance is the way that with copy+paste, leading spaces on
a line are eliminated, and multiple consecutive spaces elsewhere are
reduced to a single space.  I'd prefer to have my formatting left as
specified by me.  What the world needs now is less JavaScript?

I it happens only if I  paste some text, then press return - the cursor jumps at the begiining of this text box and inserts a mew line at the top.

Try it yourself - write some words, press return, past a link, press return.

I'm using firefox 45.0, if that matters, but this happens since a few weeks.


Hope this helps!

Torsten.

> [...] paste some text, then press return [...]

    Ah.  That's it.  Paste alone puts the (now invisible) cursor at the
top of the Body box; then hitting Return puts the blank line at the top
instead of after the pasted text.  Because the cursor vanishes after
Paste, the victim might believe that it's where he expects, that is, at
the end of the pasted text.  But, apparently, it's at the top.

    So, the work-around would seem to be remembering to click somewhere
after every Paste, so that you get a visible cursor in some known
location.  Great software.

> I'm using firefox 45.0 [...]

   Same here, on a Mac.

I've seen it happen when I paste, the cursor jumps to the top.  Starting last weekend.

I haven't chnged my firefox version but I still thought I was my fault.

Just now when I pasted, it seems to work fine.

Now it failed, you have to paste at the top, then try to type, with the assumption you're going add after.

The issue is still there, every time I paste text into the text box.

No matter what text editor is configured in my profile.


Hope this helps!

Not sure what you're looking for?  It fails for you and just now, again, for me.

Hope this helps!
