this is so frustrating. I'm gonna struggle through this post but I gotta figure out why this is happening.

on this site, no matter if I am replying to a thread or starting a new thread, as i type, my cursor goes away, and i can no longer type till i click back in the body of the thread. I'll type one letter, and the cursor goes somewhere off the screen. I cannot find it. so i keep clicking back to the word im trying to type. Sometimes I can type a letter, sometimes nothing at all. Eventually i can make it through a word/paragraph. I cannot figure out why. Like I said, it only happens here.

any ideas?

kinda sounds like it's something on your end. Maybe you changed some of the settings in your mouse properties, like "hide pointer while typing". Or it might be the pointer style itself. Did you change it? Just wondering out loud.

Maybe I should add that it's not the pointer or cursor that is the problem, it's the typing. I'll type a word, and it will just stop typing, nothing happens, so i have to click back in the body of the message for it to engage again. Sometimes I can get through a word, and sometimes only a single letter, before it stops

not sure if it matters but I do use a chromebook. But again, this issue only happens on this website and when I am typing from home on the chromebook. That may be the source but I don;t understand why?

yep, I'm thinking that could be your problem. From what I understand, the chromebooks don't have harddrives. Everything you do on them lives in the "cloud". Might be some kind of communication thing with this website and the cloud.

I actually just had this problem the other day on here. It happened when I was relying to a quote. For some reason there were issue typing in that quote box. I could type a few letter then it's like I clicked outside of it and couldn't type. I'd have to click inside the quote box again and could type a few letters before it happened again.

Only noticed it when quoting someone though.

Same thing is and was happening to me. I will just be typing in a text field
and the cursor will jump to another part of the page. Makes me crazy... :yuush:
At least I'm not alone.

My buddy Chez just told me that he is having the same problem, and only on this site. He says he can post on topics but can't send pms.
