Cursor jumps of post when I press the spacebar.

When texting in a box every couple of lines pressing the spacebar disengages the cursor from the box. Then it is back to normal for a couple of lines. I was wondering if this is just me?

    I've seen it happen too.  As I typed this the page scrolled to the bottom.  While creating a post yesterday the  text entry area lost focus several times.  It lost focus again while I typed that sentence.  I don't know it if caused by pressing Space or not. 

    During this there is constant content delivery attempts.  It isn't consistent to a single ad provider that I can see.  There are also several instances of 'uploading' going on.  

    Posts to this forum are also no longer included in the Recent Discussions listing.  This is a very recent change.

    I am not certain it is the space bar myself, I tried to keep an eye out to see if I could be pressing a non-standard key that was causing this pretty sure it was not.

    Not sure it is related to the ads, I don't see new ads popping up and those that reload themselves (with a different image) like the one from Adchoices don't seem to effect this.

    I am using Microsoft Edge on Windows 10, if it is the same problem that would suggest it is the site not us.

    Now it seems to have stopped and I have no windows updates, so no idea what it was.

    Started again. I noticed that if I don’t type the cursor stops blinking after about 15 seconds. After about another 15 seconds the cursor is removed from the text box.

    I am now pasting in my posts from Word.
