The point of this post is to point out a technical error I've been noticing and experiencing when using TOTJO's forums, and to raise (a little) awareness about the problem so that one of the tech specialists here can (hopefully) fix it (easily).

The Issue - Set Up/Background Information:
When trying to quote someone who has quoted me, I click on the quote button for the person's post that I want to quote. Then, I want to delete my own quote (that the other person used to quote me) so that I'm not quoting myself. The issue I'm about to describe occurs when I try to delete my own quoted text when replying to someone who has quoted me.

The Issue - What is it?:
When I try to delete my own quoted text, after someone has quoted me and I want to quote them back, I cannot! ALL of the text on my screen is deleted after I've deleted a certain amount of my own quoted text. *I've inserted a video above that I hope you can successfully view.

My Own Tech Specs (when the issue occurred)
I am using...

-Macbook Pro 13" Mid 2012
-OSX 10.8.2
- Google Chrome Browser (Latest Mac Edition)

See pics below for further tech specs

I use Chrome and I have the same issue.

But, I have also found a fix for it.
If you quote text, delete and the box disappears: find the corner, and drag it back out like you would to resize the box anyway, and it will reappear.

I never faced such a problem, and I use firefox (17.0.1).

It's not TOTJO's problem, as far as I can see it's more because of your browser. Try resizing it, see if it works, if not, why don't you change your browser?

Definitely a browser issue, we use a regular textarea... I use chrome and firefox on linux and never faced that issue.

maybe it's only on macs? A textarea uses the system toolkit... That could be the problem.
