    The above recco is not my preferred option. It might work, and cudos for recommending it, but having to manually switch your editing mode is a workaround, it is not a solution. The problem shouldn't be there in the first place.
    I'd observe the same thing is an issue with a lot of online forum/board text editing windows.

    I was having the same problem and found this works. You will also be able to copy and paste and use the smiley buttons.
    Ah, that did it! Another satisfied customer..............

    But will it remember from session to session? I guess I'll find out...

    Nope. You have to click on it every time you post something. I just got used to it.

    I agree, but why is it that way??? Why do you have to turn off a formatting button to not lag in a typing response time?

    And as for switching to Google Chrome that was suggested by someone previously - please do homework on How it's tracking and recording sooo many things about everything you do in the internet. Not that it is tracking your surfing because that's a given, but HOW it's doing it! Can you say read the crazy long fine print that you are agreeing with when signing onto Google Chrome? No Thank You - You cannot have access to my hard drive and its files!

    I've experienced this here and ACRforum, but on and off. It could be the forum software than the choice of browser.

    I had a similar issue on the SIG Arms forum a while back. Turned out it was a compatibility issue between IE and the forum software, so every time you typed a letter it created a little infinite loop. Mover to Firefox and problem was solved.

    No setting or add-on, in IE 11 to change, to fix this pemanently???

    Maybe four nine's can see what's up with this issue.

    Agreed, mine has been terrible, the A/A trick helped a lot with posting but to scroll the page is crazy slow and God forbid I use spell check or it's done. This started what 2 weeks ago when the sight did some changes, must be something to do with that, I think, but I'm a PC hack and not the smart kind !
