Thats my question It happens here on xda for example. You're writing something and all of a sudden the cursor is on the first line at the beginning ofthe post.

Is there a way to prevent that from happening? Btw it also happens if you disable the trackpad, so its not due to accidentally hitting it while typing. Maybe its a problem with the browser? Gonna test it on opera now.

Just writing this post to test if it still happens with the ICS+ browser. I really like the look and feel of the stock browser especially with the keyboard shortcuts, its just awesome to switch through the tabs for example.

So far so good didnt jump and just seems more stable on a first look. Gonne be using this for a while and keep you updated.

Maybe it's because the touch pad doesn't disable while you are typing (palm check) and you are accidentally bumping your palm on it. Try disabling the touch pad while you type and see if that works.

But thx for your post anyway.

Btw it also happens on the ICS+ browser Guess i'll have to wait for an update then. Or the keyboard shortcuts being implemented on another browser.

Sorry for reviving my old thread, but this is still a major annoyance when writing forum posts and stuff...

Definately would be nice to get a fix for that!

[e] as usual i find a solution or a workaround right after posting a problem Using chrome beta since half an hour and made several posts, cursor never jumped to first line.

Now all they have to do is improve the keyboard shortcuts on the browser and enable flash support and gestures like on ICS+. I'm so used to go back/forward with swipes i cant live without them anymore :/

Chrome Browser did NOT solve this for me
This has been one of the biggest annoyances I have had with the Prime, and it happens to me on ALL browsers: Opera, ICS ++, Dolphin, Boat, you name it. It is so freaking annoying that I often switch to my PC when on XDA and typing responses.... Its any type of text box on a web platform in my case. I will be mid-stream typing, and all of a sudden I am at the top, in the first character position.

Annoying as ****! (I might have mentioned that)

It's ICS related, not Prime. Happens on my Galaxy Nexus too. PITA.
