Typing Issue since upgrading to IE8 - Intermittent Characters
Since upgrading to IE8, I've had issues with intermittent characters not
appearing when connected.

I assumed it was a bad keyboard - not the issue.

I really don't feel like going with Chrome or Firefox until IE9, etc. appears.

Any help would be appreciated.

IE8 is causing the keyboard to mis keystrokes? I seriously doubt it.

I can't help you, but I'm sure that IE8 isn't the source of the problem you
reported.

That shoulda been "MISS keystrokes ..." I use IE8, but I'm sure it was me
that missed the keystroke, not IE.

One suspected cause of this is some software for a fingerprint reader.

RE: Typing Issue since upgrading to IE8 - Intermittent Characters
I'm having the exact same issue (as well as another co-worker who just
recently upgraded to IE8 on an Windows XP SP3 workstation). There definitely
is security related software; however, this issue was not present prior to
IE8.

Something is definitely amiss and will need to be corrected before an
Enterprise roll-out (at least in this location).

Re: Typing Issue since upgrading to IE8 - Intermittent Characters
Yes, of course...it can't be a Microsoft issue. It must be my bad typing or
my crappy computer.

Meanwhile, do a quick search and you'll see this was an issue for people who
previously upgraded to IE7 and there are several posts from people who
upgraded to IE8.

Why do I think its IE8?

This issue doesn't occur when I'm offline. Only when I'm using IE8 as my
browser. Just for comparison's sake I installed Firefox - imagine my
surprise when the error magically disappeared.

So you can seriously doubt what you'd like. Continue to drink the Kool-Aid.

Anyone else out there have something contructive to add?

Re: Typing Issue since upgrading to IE8 - Intermittent Characters
A bit more info might help. Is this happening on all sites, or just a few?
I've seen this happen on phpBB forums, and other forums using a caret
tracking javascript routine that doesn't work well with IE8. I've even had
it on my phpBB based site. The fix for phpBB is pretty simple, if rather
crude - add a meta tag to switch IE8 in to IE7 compatibility mode. If the
website owner hasn't made this change, then you need to click the button to
put IE8 into compatibility mode for the site that's doing this.

The other possibility is that you have an add-on running that is trying to
interact with what is being typed. I've had issues with the spellchecker in
IE7Pro doing this, for instance.

Given that it doesn't occur when you're "offline", what makes you think it's
an IE bug? This points even more to it being an add-on that is only
operating when you're "online".

And installing a different browser and pointing out that it doesn't have the
same issue is irrelevant. When I run FF for testing here, I don't see the
bug on my own site - that's because (a) it's not IE and the javascript in
the phpBB editor has a different routine specifcally for FF, and (b) I don't
have IE7Pro running in FF. When making comparisons with other software, you
first need to eliminate all 3rd party code that could be interfering, which
you clearly have not done.

As to "an issue for people who upgraded to IE7", and "several posts from
people who upgraded to IE8", what about all those users who didn't post
about this "issue" because they don't have it. Using highly insignificant
statistics to support your claim that it must be an IE8 issue is like
stating that everyone on the planet is has long ginger hair and a goatee
beard because a minute fraction of the population has those features (I'm
not singling out people with ginger hair and goatees, that just happens to
be what I look like :P)

Re: Typing Issue since upgrading to IE8 - Intermittent Characters
EnsoniqDude:
Which version of Windows Vista are you using? Which service pack?

Does the issue occur when you start IE8 with no add ons?

Does the issue occur when you boot to Windows to safe mode with networking, then, use IE8's normal mode; IE8's no add ons?

Does the issue resolve itself if you use IE8's compatibility feature, with Windows in normal mode?
Some Web sites may not be displayed correctly or work correctly in Windows Internet Explorer 8

Re: Typing Issue since upgrading to IE8 - Intermittent Characters
This appears related to when any form, including this response form, is used in the web browser. Forms for shopping carts, blogs, and so forth become "laggy" in IE8 and characters are missed during this lag. For example, I have had to back up and fix several words in this response when up to 2 characters at a time have been skipped while typing. General typing in other applications do not seem to be affected - only typing in the web browser. Is it possible that some of the "intelligent" caching that tries to learn "autofill" information is impacting it?

If it's all forms, then most likely culprit is an add-on interfering, such
as a spellchecker (like in IE7Pro), or with form handling features (like the
Google Toolbar).

I get zero issues typing into forms using IE8, either on XP SP3 here at
work, or on XP SP2 or W7 at home, and other respondents to this thread also
have no problems.
