I just started to download Firefox. IF by chance my computer eats it, within the next few weeks, each and every person on this forum, will receive an equal portion bill to cover my losses. :o :o
Seriously, I'm going to try to duplicate thre problem using Firefox.
I have my doubts as to it being the browser, as this is really a free standing program not dependent on a browser except for locating the site, and connecting to it, and keeping it in cookies.
So I really don't know if I.E is the problem, as I think, possible more people use I.E. than Firefox, so the odds are against it.

I just tried I.E. and could not get the the jumping cursor BUT I have an old version of I.E. (6.0).  I don't use it so I don't plan to upgrade.  Again, I could not duplicate the issue with either Firefox or the earlier version of I.E.  That doesn't mean there isn't a problem, but I cannot find a problem in the software.

D/P:

Could it be a problem with the forum software?  The thing that is fishy to me is that it was working fine, then started acting up.

If it were a telephone, I'd be right on it.   :-\

At work, I am running IE 6.0 and on XP on an HP computer.

No problems with that combination.

OK, I guess we're not beating a dead horse.  But I don't have any clue what to do about the issue some of you are experiencing.  The software is pretty much a template with boxes to check for different options.  My limited web site design keeps me from reading source code to determine the issue.  I think last time I upgraded the software with Simple Machines and that seemed to make it go away.  I'll give that a short again....if I we aren't already using the latest version.

That was quick.  I updated from version 1.1.9 to 1.1.10.  According to the information from Simple Machines there were some bugs that were corrected.   Please let  me know if something changes.

Thanks
