A bug? or just for me?
Hi guys, and gals.
Today I have noticed a persistent bug, or so I believe.
When doing 'code challenges' if the text area scrolls before I click inside it then I can no longer click inside the text area.
I have to scroll right to the top of the webpage and then click inside of the text area, this is forcing me to use my directional arrows to scroll through the whole page of text/code if I have to edit something towards the bottom.
As an example I can only click in !DOCTYPE of the code challenge and manually scroll down, without a mouse because it deselects the text area, I cannot click in any other part of the text area if a scroll has been activated.
I also tried searching the forums to see if there are any other related posts, but every letter I type in the search field refreshes the results and deselects the search field is this related?
This has only started today and I am having no other problems with selecting / deselecting / refreshing anywhere else on this site or any others. I have also closed my browser, logged out and in and even restarted my laptop.
Anybody else having this issue? or any advise?
Thanks in advance.
Edit: I am doing 'How to make a website' with Nick Pettit track, if that helps narrow it down.

Could you send this to the Treehouse Support Team. This was an ongoing issue in the past, but I haven't seen any posts regarding this problem for quite some time.
If you could make the Support Team aware, they may be able to advice you further.

There has been a known bug our developers are investigating that prevents typing in text fields when your browser window is too narrow (~400px or so). If you widen them, cursors return and one can navigate through the text field as expected. Might this be what's happening?
