    I always have problems when posting of hitting a certain key combination and ending up in another website, or something.
    This loses everything I have already typed when I go back to the post page.

    My questions are:
    1. Is this a key-board shortcut setting in my IE browser, or in the YaBBA-Dabba-Do software?

    2. Am I the only one with this problem?

    3. Is there any way to turn it off?

    hmm, what key combination are you using? I have never had that happen to me, however I don't use "shortcuts" often

    I'm not exactly sure what the combination of keys it is.

    I will just be typing away, and all of a sudden KTOG takes off for another website.

    I never post on any other site, so I can't decide if it is IE, or YaBB doing it.

    Maybe I just type too fast, or more likely, too slow.

    It's a possibility that your cursor is simply hanging over one of the buttons on the page, and if you hit the enter key by accident, it's like pushing the left button on the mouse over that link. Just a theory mind you, but I have done that before myself.

    I don't think it's a matter of hitting the enter key.

    More often then not it's the "A" key, in combination with some other letter. How fast I'm typing also seems to play into it. Typing really fast seems to cause it, while deliberately slowing way down, it never does it.

    I have tried slowing down the keyboard repeat rate, but that didn't seem to help.

    Also went th
    I just now popped up an IE menu screen while typing "through" in the above sentence.

    Also went through the IE help and it appears all of it's keyboard shortcuts have to have the "Alt". "Ctrl" or "F1 - F10" keys used in combination with some letter key to do anything, and I'm not using any of them.
