Not so much a bug but....

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

....just a frustrating change.

 

Used to be when I finished reading a thread I just held down the space bar to navigate to the bottom of the page where I can click on the Recent Discussions or the New Posts (much better than the New Posts links at the top that takes you to a drop down menu rather than the new posts).

 

Now when I hit the space bar it takes me to the reply window which requires me to click on an area outside the reply window so I can continue to the bottom of the page where the superior links live.

OS and browser? I just tried with Chrome 24 and Windows 7 Ultimate x64 and space bar took me right to the bottom.

Sorry, even though I'm only moderately (at best) comp savvy, I know this is pertinent info.

 

Windows 7

Chrome

 

 

I thought this was happening all the time but further investigation reveals that it does not.  I'll try to figure out specifically when it happens.

 

Thanks for the response.

Okay.... it just happened when I posted a reply then tried to navigate to the bottom via the space bar.

 

I don't think this is the only circumstance, but maybe it is.  I'll continue investigating.

I had tried that without success. I think the issue may be if you've somehow clicked inside the edit box. In which case hitting the space bar would jump you to that box, but not continue on down. When it happens, is there the flashing cursor inside the post box?

Well, let's try it again, this time at work with W7 and Firefox....

 

 

edit:  When I write a reply then click the submit button, the thread updates and I see my post added to the thread.  By then my hand is off the mouse and the very next thing my hand touches is the space bar.  This puts the cursor in the reply window and subsequent pressing of the space bar just adds spaces in the reply window.

Interesting.  I had not been using the space bar as a navigation aid.  It did take me to a reply window, but did not place the cursor where editing began with additional pushes of the spacebar.  Lately I have had a problem with submitting a post, and the thread not updating to show the post, I've had to hit F5 to see the post., but that behavior is only on my work computer.
