I want to highlight a word or a sentence to copy and paste it somewhere, and the whole site above that point gets highlighted. What is causing this? The only other time I have experienced it was when I logged on from my high school and never from my home computer.

It's always done that on my computer. I'm not sure why.

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Its probably because I am using IE 6 (came default on the machine) instead of IE 8 which I just downloaded recently too. Damn it. This whole thing just pisses me off so much. Angry

Why would you download IE? I only use it because I don't feel like downloading a good browser.

Ah that explains it. You use IE. Switch to a half decent browser ASAP.

I had IE before I changed Hard Drives and it didn't do this.

IE wouldn't work for months on my computer, so I downloaded Mozilla Firefox and couldn't get it to work either. So I deleted it. You can't really get rid of IE because Windows embedds the damn thing in Windows. You can delete the program but a lot of it will stay on the computer. So if Firefox didn't work just like IE  didn't, I saw no reason to keep it.

I would have lost it anyway when I changed Hard Drives.

It does happen on IE 6.

Cease your shameless marketing. Tongue I have never had a problem with IE that didn't also happen with Firefox and a bunch of other garbage everyone says, "I need".

The beauty of it is, I found one that is optimized both for Windows XP and for AOL so I didn't have to do a damn thing except download and install it. Last time I downloaded the plain IE 8 and I had to spend several hours configuring it. Also the reason why I won't be downloading alternatives.

I know because I'm typing from a computer with IE 6 right now. The highlighting issue isn't a problem if you're highlingting the contents of a text box, however.

The school computers at my high school must have had IE 6 is well. If its a computer you or someone you know owns, I would suggest downloading and upgrade for to IE 8. I would also suggest finding one optimized for your OS and ISP.

In most cases, I do work with IE 6 for school purposes. Tongue Otherwise, I have IE 7, but I won't be upgrading to IE 8.

That reminds me, Microsoft is now working on IE 9. They're finally moving away from Windows XP, too (and I reckon it won't work on Windows 2003 either; it requires Windows Vista or later).

No, but AOL is likely why you don't have success using a vanilla version of IE or Firefox or <insert name of other browser here>.  AOL does a number of kludgy things because their internal network was NOT designed using the standard Internet protocols.  For the most part their kludges work, but they do make it difficult to access the Internet using anything other than their software unless you like mucking around with computer configurations.

Lol, the reason why I use Safari is because IE8 ****ed me over so many times I just got pissed off and downloaded the closest browser that I could find.Tongue
