Textboxes and IE 8

Recommended Posts

Well, as I was posting a review of Halo (and a few other times) I was getting extremely annoyed at a little issue I've ran into while posting here.  It isn't specific to flux, but this is the only place I ever type much into a scrollable textbox.

If you are using IE 8 and you start typing up a response, you may notice that once you fill the box and the scroll bar is active, that after each time you type a character it scrolls to the top of the message.  You then type another character and it scrolls down and then back up.  Very annoying to watch, and makes it difficult to type as you can't really see what you are typing.

I started playing around and turned off the following which seems to fix it:

Tools > Internet Options > Advanced > Browsing > Enable visual styles on buttons and controls in webpages

I guess I did also turn off the 'Smart Screen Filter' option, so it might have been that one as well, but I'm guessing it's the visual styles piece
