    Whenever I use Safari to try to edit a post here on Macrumors, as I click on the text to select, Safari will scroll down to the end of the window, and won't let me click on the text I want to edit. I was wondering if anyone else has this, and what's going on? I'm on 9.0.3 (11601.4.4) on 10.11.3

    Yep, same thing happening here. You have to use the keyboard to navigate through the text you want to edit. Trying to use the mouse makes the page jump to the very bottom.

    I'm on Version 9.0.2 (11601.3.9), and on 10.11.2.

    I have the same issue. Using OS 10.11.3 and Safari 9.0.3. As a test I tried using Chrome and it does not have the editing problem, but I prefer to stay with Safari.

    I see this sometimes also on Safari with El Capitan.

    This happens to me on eBay as well, it's not exclusive to macrumors, it seems it's an issue with Safari judging by the feedback so far.

    Yeah, it's a Safari issue. Apple needs to fix it.

    If you want a work around until it's fixed turn off the Rich Text Editor while you are editing the post.

    I've had the same problem on many websites; it seems to happen to most or all text boxes that have a scroll bar.

    (post removed by author) I'm not sure if it was accurate.

    This has been going on for a while, seems weird that it wouldn't be high priority right? This practically made me reluctantly make Chrome default browser again.

    No, this got fixed in Safari 9.1 and the 10.11.4 OSX Update.
