issue with using ie8 on the forum
« on: September 13, 2010, 08:11:15 PM »
i have had a lot of trouble using the forum using ie8. if your post goes longer then the existing text box available it wont scroll down and you can't see what ur typing.

can someone look into the tech and sort it out.

Friends don't let friends use IE.  :P Firefox FTW!

I don't have 8 to test this, sorry. Hopefully someone else here does.

Yup - got the same problem when I used Internet Explorer 8. Been using Firefox/ Safari instead.

We had a constant problem of malfare etc. at our office until we changed from IE to Firefox. No bugs anymore!

I always wondered how some people could make such long posts.  Maybe ie8 is a good idea sometimes, forces brevity!

ok so looks like its been confirmed.

i'm stuck with ie8 at work  but use chrome at home. anyway it doesn't effect me to a huge extent but it's something you should look into getting fixed. its a pretty major browser so the site should work with it IMO.

I used to have IE 8 on this PC, but I rolled it back to IE 7 because 8 absolutely sucks. And I'll also use Firefox.

In general, IE 8 works better with Windows 7 and Vista. But I know it has problems with Windows 8 and Windows XP.

yeah look i more just wanted to give you guys a heads up that it wasnt working and as something you should chase up. i can work around it no worries but i presume someone is providing you with this forum service so they should be sorting it for you.

Glad I'm not the only one with this problem.   ;D

I use Mozilla at home but at work its IE (I do some surfing at lunch)...it is irritating and as my typing is poor, it leads to a lot of spelling mistakes if I can't see what I'm writing.
