Guys, I know this is just trivial. But I can't undersatnd why this is happening.

 

When I type anything into the search box at the top right of the page, the text won't go in until I get halfway across the box.

Anyone else?

Are you using a windowblind?  One blind made access to the "search everywhere" option unavailable.  Maybe the one you're using is interfering in a different way.

 

Oops, I thought you meant the Start Menu search box.

Tried a few blinds, all the same. Wiz says he isn't seeing it.

 

BTW, Win 7 64 bit IE9. Running the 32 bit iE9.

It seems to be related to "compatibility view".

 

When checked, there is a problem.

 

When unchecked, no problem.

 

At least that is what happens for me.

Good catch, I can replicate it here with those settings on Win7/64/IE9

I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit SP1 and IE 9 64 bit and don't have that problem.

And how many times have I told members that the Java engine for IE9 x64 is slow, broken and to use IE9 x32 instead?

In my case, I am using the 32 bit flavor of IE9 on Win7 Ultimate 64bit. Compatibility view does cause the issue here. I concur with Scrofulous1.

 

 

@ #4 yrag, that's just too frikkin' funny!!!

I lost track. Would you please remind me.

You are dealing with a redneck, what else would you expect. You might want to PM him and let him know how to turn the compatibility view off and on.

It might be the key logger I installed on your PC causing the typing to appear slowly.    Have you tried entering your credit card infom, mother's maiden name, date of birth, etc?

Although I agree that 64Bit IE9 is not as robust as it should be, the 3 people who have experienced the issue have all been using the 32 Bit version.
