Forum Editor Hidden When I Reply to Posts Not Last in Thread RRS feed

  • Question

  • Periodically in the past, when I reply to a post that is not the last one in the thread, part of the post editor is hidden by the next reply. Usually I cannot see the Comment section or the Submit/Cancel buttons. This time (yesterday) I could not see the area where you enter your reply. A screen shot:

    I tried to reply to the post you see partially at the top. The reply by jrv is the next reply, and I didn't reply to that one because jv had deleted it and there is no Reply button there. I could see nothing in the area where I enter my reply, but I pasted in a reply anywhere, and you can barely see the very end of it after the banner for the next reply.

    I'm using IE 9 on Windows 7 Professional in "The Scripting Guys Forum", where I am a moderator (that might matter). Any idea what is happening? I think this only happens if I reply to a post that is not the last one in the thread. Here is the thread as it appears now:

    My reply is last and is fine, but I replied to AbqBill's, not jrv's.

    Have you tried clearing the TIF?   I did see something like this when I started using IE10 but I can't remember the details.   A possible workaround to try would be  Alt-V,y,N  View, Style, No Style.   It's often tricky finding all the elements then but usually at least they aren't hidden.



    Good luck

  • I can't repro. Can anyone else repro this?

    Thanks!
