    Hi
    I kid you not the scroll bar on the side bounces none stop! It’s getting hard to write a post. How do you stop it? I’m using 2.8

    Try deactivating all plugins and check to see if this resolves the problem. If it does, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    Try switching to the default theme then in case it's a problem within your current theme.

  5. This is only happening on your admin side, and it happens with all plugins turned off?

    Sometimes it's necessary to rename the plugins folder via FTP as the odd "inactive" plugin can still create problems.

    Let me guess, you're using IE8?
    I really hoped they'd have solved this issue in WP 2.8, but it actually got worse. 2.7 just scrolled up when it autosaved, but in 2.8 it really is almost constantly moving around, as you say. Not fixed in 2.8.1 either, so it's quite impossible to write posts in WP anymore, I have to write them in Notepad and then c/p to post.
    (And no, I'm not going to use another browser, but I am thinking about looking for some other blogging software if this isn't solved at least by 2.9...)
