This has been driving me nuts for a couple weeks. I've been primarily using the Touchnet browser, because I totally love the tab features. Not to mention, everything displays just like IE. But I have had multiple instances where I can't use the up/down keyboard arrows (and I use my keyboard more than mouse for navigating).

I've already figured out that if I just click the srcoll wheel and let the DHTML scroll do it's thing and click the scroll wheel again, I'm back to normal with the keyboard keys.

Anyone have any idea what causes this?

I wonder if he did that on purpose, or if that was a really good typo?!

As a side note:

Yep I'm sure most of us have issues with what Gates has done with Windows, but I defy any of us to do better. I've used 98se since it was created...also used 2000 Pro and off on on when I could XP home and pro.

In addition, Ive used Linux 8 and Win 2003 server and Novell 5.1 Server and others.

For the most part, my bottom line is I'd just like to see one OS period that works on all platfroms without any issues.

XP is everything in an OS I could want at this point. Everything I wanted
fixed in the 9x versions, and the cool stuff they never had, is XP. I'm
perfectly honest when I say, I may never upgrade past it for a long, long
time.

Good analysis. Never thought that far ahead :)

Those are the exact thoughts of people that will make Microsoft realize again that they need to make their system buggier so people will buy the new improved version :wink:

Anyway to get back on subject:

Never heard of the touchnet browser or that problem, sorry!
