    Writing/replying to messages with Safari/webKit in the MacRumors Forum really drives me mad.
    Without any predictable reason the page jumps away from the editing-window up to the top of the page each time I press any button.
    Anyone else having this problem or knowing about a workaround?

    I'd wish I want to use it, but it's really slow and I rather stay with webKit...
    Maybe I should spend some time to speed-up TFF and get used to it!?

    The link's in my signature. :D

    In answer to your original question though, I don't post here using Safari/Webkit so I don't have anything to offer you there. I generally only pull Safari out when I need to quickly view Youtube videos and I quit the app shortly thereafter.

    No idea why it would jump on you. Do you have the rich text editor off? That's been known to make things painfully slow here because javascript is always executing.

    I had the same problem - turning off the rich text editor fixes it.

    If you want to still use bold, italics and such then you have to hand-code it when the rich text editor is off. The codes should be in the Macrumors help section.

    Thanks for that hint - I didn't think about the consequences, switching RTF-editing off... ;)
    I like plain text. That's an old habit of the PalmOS days (there had been that superb "MemoLeaf"-App http://www.redwood-creative.com/global/memoleaf.htm which held a huge amount of my data those days...)
    Plain Text - the best way to free information from beeing trapped in a golden cage.
