Extra Long Edit Boxes in IE9 Now

Once again, something's different.

It's not "broken and I can't get squat done" different, just "annoyingly" different.

Start a new discussion, or edit a post and find the edit box particularly long.  Here's a zoomed-out screen grab of this particular one I'm typing in right now, as shown in Internet Explorer 9.

It doesn't seem to do it in FireFox, but who knows what cache is in need of refreshing.

This forum presents something new to shake one's head at every week.  If only it could be a GOOD something, and the head shaking a nodding action.  Maybe one day...

Alas, I guess I'll delete my cached files and see if it clears up.

Just installed Win7 and IE9 on my machine today and I don't see that.Did you, at some point, resize the box while composing a message? The size of the box is supposed to be remembered between sessions. Try shrinking it down and see if it remembers the new smaller size.

Might not be the forum's fault. Could be a browser thing.

Thanks, that's exactly it.  I lengthened it for a long post I was typing.  I kind of expected that to be temporary, but I'm willing to accept it's working as expected.

Though lengthening it at the time seemed natural, somehow it didn't occur to me to try shortening it myself.  Sometimes I wonder about my rate of brain cell loss.  Then I forget to wonder.

By the way, shortening the edit box during an edit of a post does NOT cause the new size to be retained.

I'm seeing if, with this post, adding a reply causes it to be retained.  If not, I'll create a new thread to try to get it to stick.

Edit:  I'm not sure any more.  Now it seems both editing a post and replying seems to cause the size to be retained.  Maybe one has to exit IE9 before the setting is retained across multiple browser windows.
