    Sometimes when I try to edit a post, I can't do anything in the initial edit post popup window. I can't get the cursor active there, or if I type, I can't control the location of the cursor. I have to go to "more options" to get a functioning edit window.

    This doesn't happen all the time, just often enough to be annoying.

    WinXP, Firefox 3.6.13

    I've noticed this as well. It seems to happen when the first character in the post has some kind of formatting and the cursor gets stuck. A work around is to click on a formatting option (eg if first character is bold click on the B) and that seems to release the stuck cursor. I have no idea why this works - it just does. Another option that works is to click the AA at top right to revert to BB code mode and then click back to rich text mode.

    I found exactly the same workaround.
