Yahoo Mail ,Typing point jumping backwards

  slackytambo 13:55 27 Sep 2010

Sorry I'm not too sure of it's name,it's the mark for the next letter that I'm referring to. When writing an e-mail if I stop writing for a few seconds the point jumps back to the second line that I wrote.Annoyingly when I want to read what I've just written. However if I don't want to reread,when I type in a letter it appears it jumps back to it's last position. This is Ok except if I want to reread what I have just typed. Can anyone help?

Think you mean cursor. Are you using a Laptop?

Correct It's the cursor,it keeps jumping back to the second third line of whatever I happen to be typing as soon as I stop typing for 10-20 seconds. Most annoying if I want to read say the last paragraph that I have typed,it keeps jumping back to that early position. However if I ignore this happening and just carry on typing whatever I was writing it will appear back in it's correct place,

Sorry my question is how do I stop the cursor from jumping back?

You may accidentally be brushing the touch pad without realizing. If that is the case download and install Touch Freeze which will disable your touch pad ONLY when you are typing!

No I'm not accidentally touching the bar,if I reset it back to it's last point it will in a second or two move back to that second line place,it will do this time after time so it's not me touching the bar.
