    Hey,
    when editing a long thread, pressing Ctrl+V sometimes scrolls the page to the bottom, far out of the editable area. The expected behaviour would be to simply paste the text, without any scrolling.

    This happens on OSX El Capitan + Chromium.

    Do you have an example thread where this is occurring so we can check it out?

    Thanks for reporting :)

    Of course, here is how to see the bug:

    • Open Text Editor (in my case Sublime Text 2 on OSX El Capitan)
    • Open new document, enter:
      • Note that "-a" alone doesn't cause the issue and that it could be because of /n or /r/n, which may be different if you use Windows
    • Select the whole text, copy it
    • Go to my uMMORPG thread and edit the first post (with Chromium in my case)
    • Scroll to the bottom, press enter several times until the FAQ list ends and you can insert text as usual
    • Paste the text (I used Ctrl+V)
    • See how it scrolls to the bottom. Everything is slightly grey and that preview-editing window is at the very top and nowhere to be seen, unless we scroll all the way up again
