I don't know about you, but when I make a longer post, the box flicks back up to the top with every keystroke. I just found a way around that! At the far right of the tool box above the posting box are 2 little scrolly arrows, one going up, one down. You can click on that and expand the posting box. Expanding the posting box eliminates the flicking problem.

Let me see if this works. I have the same problem and it drives me NUTS. I've even taken to typing a response out in Word and then cutting and pasting here. Hmmm....it isn't doing the flicking thing now.....I can't figure out WHEN it does it and when it ah!!!!just started...Ok---I clicked on the arrow to make text box bigger. It seems to have worked! Yea!!!!!! Thank you ML!!!!

I have a solution for that, Mel.

Never make a post longer than 3 paragraphs.

MaiMai, I think the trick is to keep extending the box so that you have lots of space between the last quote and the bottom of the post.

MaiMai, click down below your quote and THEN click on the down arrow to expand the posting space.

It works when you do that! And if you need more space, just click the down arrow again.

It only does that flicker thing on my home laptop; it doesn't do it on my work laptop. Can't figure out why....

Different browsers? I use Firefox and don't ever see that flicker thing.
