While I'm typing away in the dialogue box, my cursor suddenly pops over to the Find Member field. Seems to happen at regular intervals, perhaps during page refresh or save.
When my wife is typing on her ipad and holding it in her hands, she sometimes puts her finger on an active control near the right side.
Hello All, NO, this is a real thing. It has been happening to me too, and I have emailed the webmasters about it a while back.
On an Imac, using Safari, you go to type a reply to a post and as soon as you hit enter, the cursor and all your successive typing ends up in the "Find a Member" box. (It might also happen when your typing goes down to the next line, I'll have to look again sometime.)
I have forgotten exactly what causes it, because I have it under control. It happens, I figured out, if your browser window is not spread all across your desktop, if you keep it smaller, the problem happens again.
The window has to be open wide all the way, with the right margin at least past the "search" magnifying glass on that top blue menu bar, or this happens.
Thanks for bringing it up Ticktalk, glad I am not the only one to whom this was happening. Tim
I'm on a Mac and in Safari. I hit reply and I get to typeThis is happening to me too and it is really annoying. I am on a Mac using Safari. If I hit reply to a thread and start typing then suddenly the cursor disappears and I am typing in the "find member" box. I have to repeatedly get the cursor back in the text box and then it disappears again. Also the find member box seems to be constantly wanting to autocomplete my log in credentials. Somehow the find member box is coded in such a way that my Mac thinks it is a log-in box. I am in a position where the forum does not work properly on any of my devices, Mac, iPhone or iPad.
No such thing happens here. My name isn't in the box.Yes, You are correct. If everything was set up correctly your name would already be in the box, sounds like it is trying to fill the box with your name and can't for WHATEVER reason or reasons......
