Why does my mouse

    (laser type- nothing fancy) work except when I'm trying to edit a post here? Has anyone experienced a problem like this with a mouse and is there anything I can do about it- I know with the other type, the little ball can be taken out and cleaned but this one doesn't have that.

    I have issues with editing posts, whether I use a ball mouse, a laser mouse or a touch pad... So... I don't think it's you...

    Sometimes it works fine- other times the indicator line (or whatever it's called) is bouncing all over the place in the edit box only but not outside the edit box. If I click to add a sentence in the middfle of a paragraph or correct a mispelled word, it jumps to another area. And if I scroll down to add something at the end, it won't stay at the end, it jumps back to the top of the post. Anyone else have this?

    I've had this problem as well. I think Cheryl has been made aware of it.

    Oh- thanks! I thought it must be my mouse.

    Nope. Happens on regular replies occasionally. I just keep typing... Somehow it ends up in the right place.
