Spaces Don't Appear When Typing

This problem occurs occasionally, and I don't know if it's a Firefox thing or caused by the new forum software.

Often when typing a reply, the cursor won't advance when I press the spacebar. The space character has been entered, because the first letter of the next word appears where it should, but the cursor just sits at the end of the last word.

The problem will continue until I scroll the window a bit, then it will be OK, but may recur.

Anyone else seen this?

I've seen it a couple of times and I'm also a Firefox user. Never saw it on the old forum software.

I know how to solve your problems...you just need a faster computer.

Sorry, cant get that out of my blood.

You guys using the wysiwyg editor or the plain variety? I've noticed the wysiwyg editor doing all sorts of interesting things...if you stop typing for a few seconds it decides you really want a new paragraph and skips down on you.

Try one of the other editor options and see if it persists.
