    Nope try another browser if you can't write one then it's your PC settings. Good luck.

    Looks like it may be an issue with the latest incarnation of internet explorer, all other browsers seem fine (including pre 11 versions of ie). I believe the latest version of xen fixes this and I believe an upgrade will happen soon.

    Had this with my phone too, HTC one.
    Just stopped bringing up the keyboard.
    Quick switch on and off sorted it.

    Internet Explorer is a PITA :) "they" seem to alter stuff to suit themselves and not the users :mad: The latest version is incompatible with loads of things and the updates just happen with out explanation :rolleyes: - like uploading my website!! - had to uninstall it - re-install previous version and "tick" "do not install updates automatically"

    Didn't actually realise anyone still used IE.......:chuckle:
