|I was working on my aunt's PC, and I had a situation that occured & has happened a few times in the past.|
I open google & I'm able to type in the field box and search. Also, I can highlight text. Within a minute or so, I loose all ability to type in the box or highlight text. What's strange is that I just finally got this thing restored, and I'm having the same problem she was having on her emachine. A few times at other people's house I have noticed the same thing on occasion.
You can, however, close the window most times & re-opn it, and then you regain the ability again for a minute.
I'm not sure if it's just google or not, but so far, all of the text boxes on this page are typing in, and I can highlight text just fine.
If you have any idea of what might cause this problem, please let me know.
Ok, so I opened google in another instance while posting this, and for a while I was about to think everything was cleared up, but yes! Now, I cannot type in any fields or highlight any text on that page whatsoever! The only means of getting the text into the box is to right-click & click Select All and go arrows or Home/End to get the cursor into the box. These boxes are clickable. I finally clicked on a link to open it in another window, loosing this one, but could that have something to do with it? Cookie related perhaps or some type of timeout? My preferences with google have it set to open in New Window.
Anyway, I was just at awe how the same thing was effecting my aunt's PC & how I cannot seem to come up with any search results that point to that problem.
I'll stop now...lol
