Keyboard recognition issues in Jive Forum (Adobe.com)

When ever I'm typing into a new message for a post sometimes the keyboard skips and jumps to the next line or skips the recognition of some letters altogether.  I think there's a problem with the way that Jive's Forum is handling user input.  Can this be fixed?  I noticed it in some other people's post by the way the characters and lines are spaced also.

Been like that for a while now. I am used to the pain now. Who knows, if ever, when they (whoever they is) will fix it.

I thought I and some others were having hardware issues and needed new keyboards.  I am also facing difficulty with my email provider where sometimes in Internet Explorer 8 it skips letters.  I tried optimizing the browser but that didn't help (only a little) by deleting the cache of visited pages and browsing history.  I'm typing fine now into this forum on my MacBook Pro but on Windows Vista is where I'm finding the trouble I described.  Wonder if that has anything to do with it.  Thanks dec9 for responding.

WinXP and is totally random and bloody anno

ying.


How come this can't be fixed?


It appeared without effort; surely it can be re

moved without effort?


I

t is a big time waster for somebody who is trying to help in here!

This happened to me constantly in IE, but have to admit that it has not happened, since I moved to Google Chrome.

Good luck,

You can blame piss poor JavaScript "programming" (lol) for this forum's problems and most likely for your email problems too.  Aren't browser dependencies fun?  (Can't wait until everyone starts drinking the HTML5 kool aid on a large scale.)

Google Chrome is the only browser compatible with this jiveware, it seems.  Funny stuff.

o compensate for a poor forum software.

John,

They should not. But, until things change, that might be a workable solution.

Until then,

Oh, please do not get me wrong. I am NOT defending the software in any way. I have fought most of the same battles, as everyone here.

I was just sharing a personal observation, that might, or might not, help the OP.

Nothing more - nothing less,

Me either!  (I basically did switch browsers specifically to compensate for this poor forum software. )

But I understand that not everyone is willing to install 3+ browsers like PJ and myself (ducks and runs for cover) .

I can't believe they've yet to fix the line break problem(s).  (Wow!)  It probably happens in Opera (still) too.

I have 5 browsers and one of them I have 3 versions of on my system.  But I prefer IE because of its "Send Shortcut to Desktop" menu item.  What I now can't figure out is why this is my default browser but all of my Adobe Help topics come up in Firefox?  Firefox is not my default browser, IE is.  Any thoughts?

I will mark this forum as answered once someone from Adobe chimes in with a response as to why the forums behave so strangely and why my default browser is not activated when I use Adobe Help from any Creative Suite application menu.

No need to duck and run. If you count Seamonkey I have 7 and the adobe forum at the same on all 7.

SeaMonkey, Camino, FireFox, Safari, iCab, Opera, and OmniWeb. They are a mixuture of Gecko, and webkit. As I use OX.4.11 on a PowerPC Machine, They don't make a Chrome version for it (intel Only). IF I had an intel machine I would have Chrome as well.
