If window gets too big to scroll (because HTML is kinda retarded with window sizes on scrolling pages), your best choice is to use "Tab" key to swap between cursors until you are over the "Save" option and hit enter, no other way around it honestly.

I know, that's what I'm saying, HTML is being retarded, so won't actually let you scroll to the bottom since it's scrolling window over scrolling page. However, pressing "Tab" on the keyboard cycles through the cursors (text box, buttons, etc.), so keep pressing Tab until cursor is over the "Save" option even if you can't see it, then press "Enter". In order to know how many times you need to press Tab, try editing your post on here and count how many button presses it takes, then go do that on the post you want to edit.

Or, you know, next time just link the newbie to the rules page with the url for it and only need one line of text:P

There is a workaround for this. On the drop down menu for the post (the one that has edit and report on it), just hit the '...' next to Edit. It opens it into a new page instead of editing it in the funky HTML window thing, so you should be able to scroll fine.

That only works on threads as far as I know, not on blog post comments unfortunately...

EDIT: Yup, just tested it, only on threads, not blog comments or blog OPs (if you made the blog).

Yes I can,confirm,this "..." is not in the list in a Blog entry.

In the meantime I fixed it with try and error.

Thank you for your advises.:)
