    Default Arrow keys don't work in Quick Reply Text Box.

    I recently picked up a new laptop, and have noticed that when I try typing in the Quick Reply box at the bottom of a thread I can't use the arrow keys to move the cursor around inside what I have typed, if I want to go back and edit something I have typed I have to move the cursor with the mouse. If I use the up and down arrows the whole page moves up and down, if I use the left and right arrows the cursor just disappears from the test box. It does not do this if I am creating a new thread, or using the advanced reply page, or any other forums using the VB software, and does not happen with my desktop computers.

    My arrow keys work fine. Dell desktop, Windows 7, Chrome 17 and Firefox 11.

    I've had this same issue since the site upgrade.

    Running Windows 7 and Firefox.

    Didn't work for me until a couple of weeks ago, then suddenly it did. Check the upgrades on Firefox.

    Wow. Thought my FF was up to date (has auto updates.) But I was on version 8 and had to upgrade to 11. Arrows now work in the reply box!

    My Firefox was up-to-date till yesterday as it is set to auto update. Didn't work. Today after updating to V.11 it started working again.

    I thought I was up to date but apparently not, everything is working fine now. Thanks Gents.
