New .....half message box?

Starting yesterday, when I make a post, I have only a half message box. This is true on my tablet, laptop, and desktop PC. Not a big deal, but I don't like it much. What does everyone think? Jacob, is it deliberate?

There is some discussion of this new feature under the "question about 5 Guys fries" thread.

I am getting that with some threads too, but not all of them. I see it on both my Laptop and my Cell Phone. Do not like it much either.

The box expands to accommodate a lengthy post. Additionally, you can stretch the box from the lower right corner.
But why should you have to? The forum should be making our lives easier not more difficult.
I'm not happy about it either. I like what I type to be shaped the way the post will display. On the other hand, it might help me be less long-winded by making the post look wordier than it really is. smiling smiley

Something weird just happened. I wrote a longish post (several lines) in another thread, wanted to see all of what I had written so I could proofread, so I grabbed the "expander" and dragged it all the way to the right -- only I dragged it too far, and ended up with the result that I could no longer drag it back, and some of my words were no longer visible to me on the extreme right. I had to post the message to be able to proofread it.

Nope, don't like this feature at all!

I hate this dinky little box and I'm too dumb to find the expander. Lower right hand corner of what? I tried them all, I think. Failure.

Eeek. That definitely shouldn't be happening. It should have the full width.

I'm fixing it now.

Sorry for the error!
OK. It should be fixed now. There were some issues happening in a few different browsers.

The issue was that the message box was half the width. This was definitely not the intention.

If it is still appearing like this for anyone, please refresh your browser window. If it STILL is happening, let me know. And let me know which browser you're using.

Thank you!

Any other bugs -- please send them my way! @MDavisnowell -- sorry for giving you a headache!
All fixed for me in Chrome.

Jacob, I just replied to the Hiding Signatures thread. Got a miniature reply box.

I'm getting the same mini box replying to this thread.
The little 'mini-reply-box-within-a-reply-box' thing is gone now, for me. However, the vertical space of the reply box is only like, what? Four lines tall? Sheesh. I can drag it taller, but it's annoying. winking smiley

Laptop running on Windows 7 and a desktop running Vista. I tried it with Firefox 34 and IE 10, with same results. Mini box also on my iPhone.
Is it just me? When I go to post, clicking "reply" seems to contract the box somehow, but not submit the post. I have to click reply twice to get the post to go through.

And just to make a liar out of me, it didn't do it that time. Maybe the problem is with my mouse.

I think it's my clicking style. If I pay attention to exactly where the mouse is pointing and make a deliberate click it seems to work. I think if my hand moves in mid click it doesn't take. And since nobody else seems to have the same problem I think it's in my hand and mouse coordination. smiling smiley

Well, get your rat under control then.

Speaking of half boxes, when you try to actually view your receipts on Market Force, it's pretty difficult, with the half of box going on there....does anyone else have that problem?
