Steps to reproduce

I have noticed this going on for about a month or so through at least two recent Win10 builds on two discrete machines.

Given an IP.Board Web Forum, when posting clean (not quoting someone but using the reply or create new post), the spacebar is not enabled. I must copy and paste text into the form field, then backspace over to regain use of the spacebar, otherwise, additional attempted spaces shift the browser window downward. This only happens “once” initially in the textarea and once modified, the issue doesn’t resurface until the next posting. Only found workaround to avoid the c&p is to hit F12 to get into Developer Mode and the textarea works as expected on the first try.

    • I’m having the exact same issues and I’ve had it before with previous builds as well. One example would be

      When I tried to input text into the text field in this thread;

      ealier today I was not able to use the spacebar in ordre to get spaces in my text. It makes Edge pretty useless to me as a I spend a lot of time in IP.Board forums.

      If I quote someone instead of typing into a empty text box spacebar is working as usual. It seems like it only happens when typing into a empty reply box.
