    My iPhone is a scrooge

    Not a huge deal, but thought I would ask. I have an iPhone 4s and use the Safari app to navigate to AW. I can scroll, read, quote, and post but when I try to leave a rep, the rep box pops up and I can type one letter before it disappears. After the first letter is typed, if I re-click on the rep icon the letter is there, but I can't type anymore without it disappearing. Any ideas?

    Yeah. similar behaviour with the search box. Oddly, works fine on iPad Safari, just not on iPhone.

    I don't have an iPhone, so this might be completely useless. It sounds like it loses focus. Could you keep one finger on the pop-up box while you type the message in?

    Just tried, forgot that holding your finger down activates the copy/paste feature. And the box disappeared anyway. I think I just won't get to spread cheer on my phone. Bah humbug!

    1. Tap on hold on the

    3. Enter the Rep comment.

    It's to do with the way that Safari on iPhone allocates window variables for a new window made with javascript.

    Also, with some uncoperative text boxes or safari glitches, being in profile rather than landscape can help, along with restarting the app (you will lose a multiquote with the later, so try to copy the text first).
