    Pressing TAB on the homepage when signing in.

    After I enter my username i usualy press TAB to go to the Password line. Today everytime I have signed in, instead of taking me to the password line it takes me to the middle of the webpage.

    Is this happening to anyone else?

    It's my work computer so I can't just Stay logged in.

    Yes, for me as well. It seems that there are two sets of Username/Password fields on the screen. One pair is up near the top-right after clicking on the DefensiveCarry Concealed Carry Forum link. The other pair is down below the list of forums. Strange that there are two areas prompting for Username/Password. I'm betting this is fouling up the <tab> key.

    Since I don't typically logout each day, I don't recall ever having seen this problem. Plus, I generally use the mouse to get into a given field, for username/password.

    Me too, but only lately, and usually I don't log off anyway so I haven't noticed it much. I thought it was just me.

    There used to be a login that remembered my username and password on the top left side of the home page. It is now gone. I didn't even know about the one at the bottom, but if I enter my user name, then password, then when I check "remember me", it kicks me to the top without signing in. Waste of time.
    I'm using the one at the top right and miss the one at the top left.
    Also seems to be a bunch of advertising I don't remember.

    Even when I don't log off I have to log back in every time.

    Weird, it does the same for me. I guess I never noticed it because I very rarely log out. It appears that it is related to the right side column we added about 6 months ago. I'll see if I can find a fix for it....

    It jumps down on me most of the time.

    But if I hit tab a second time, it takes me right back to my password area.

    So I type "grady", hit tab twice, then type my password.

    Works much better than trying to move the cursor back to the password area.

    I have found no fix for this so Grady may have a good, workable solution for now. Hopefully in the upgrade this problem will "go way"....

    I have my PC's set up to automatically log me in so I dont have to worry about typing username or password. However, the first time I logged in and tabbed to the password field it did the same to me and jumped half way down the page.

    I use a lot of different computers, so I don't stay logged in, but this was a minor annoyance to me, too. I'll use the Grady patch, thanks!

    Like everyone else, it does this to me also. Started on my home PC but not at the work PC. Then out of the blue, the thing started on my work PC. Oh well.

    No fix for this? I would think the tab order is just wrong and needs to be addressed. I am not much of a web programmer though...
