In my job, I have a number of "always-open" web applications that are part of my desktop layout. I always have Trello open, plus two different Stack Exchange Chat rooms. I also have another browser window that I use like everyone else, navigating to various sites in tabs, etc.
Because I always want to keep trello and chat open, and I never want to open links from those sites in those windows, Fluid is a near perfect solution, as it creates a native, OSX app for each window. I click it, and it opens that site as a stand-alone app, which I can set to open all links in my "normal" browser, etc. I LOVE IT, and was going to switch to the paid version and get my small team on it. (I have no affiliation, just a genuine fan).
But I've encountered an issue:
At seemingly random times, typing text in a text entry box causes the cursor to leave the box and the window to scroll back up most of the way to the top of the window.
I've tested this quite a bit, and know this:
- I'm not accidentally hitting Control, Alt, etc. The only modifier key I'm using is Shift.
- I can't seem to repro it even when using the same text in the same instance it happened. After occurrences, I literally moved focus back to the box where it happened, deleted the text I was typing when it happened, and re-typed it, but it didn't occur.
- It never seems to happen when I'm not typing text in the box, so I'm pretty sure the issue is linked to that activity.
- This has always happened to me in a Stack Exchange Chat window, but I don't use Fluid for any other "text-entry" sites, so that may not be relevant. (It's not a problem for SE chat in normal browsers; I've logged thousands of hours doing the same thing in chrome and safari without incident).
Since each fluid instance is essentially an app, I thought there might be some hotkey setting somewhere I had set wrong, but can't find anything of the sort in the app or from online searches.
