    This just popped up tonight, and is very strange. When I try to enter text in a FB post or thread, the text instantly "jumps" all over the place; that is, I'll start typing on one line and it will shoot right to the end. Again and again. This is a desktop machine, so no touchpad issue here. And it doesn't happen on any other site, or on my normal applications; just on FB.

    I rebooted, but the problem returned immediately. I have no clue what the issue is. The only way to post on FB now is to create the text elsewhere and then paste it in.

    Anyone have a clue? I tried to search for this but found nothing....

    Actually....I think I noticed that on my page earlier too. I was making a status and I wanted to add a word in the middle. When I would put the cursor where I'd want it, I would type one letter and the cursor jumped to the end of the sentence.
    It isn't happening anywhere either. So it must be a glitch on Facebook.
