Backspace problems ...

Posted by John Andrews, Jun 6, 2008.

Not sure if it is my machine or the site ... but I've been getting some weird problems when I hit backspace in writing a message. Instead of deleting characters it acts as if I pressed the back button on my browser. Is anyone else seeing this?

ARGH ... this even posted in the wrong section ...

no, thats weird - sounds like you're also pressing ctrl, or something, as there is a command that takes you back a page, but just hitting delete shouldnt do that

Must be my old laptop ... been having 'phantom' activity happen. I suspect that the touch pad is 'over sensitive' and reacting to any electrostatic energy close to it.

The only thing that we could do that would cause your backspace key to do funky things would be to use javascript to detect and override keyboard events.

We don't do any of that at the moment though... Have you experienced this elsewhere on the web?

It was only here but I had been noticing some other issues with this laptop. I switched to my newer one (yes, I have two laptops ... both for work) and everything seems to be okay. The problem seems to be on my end.
