The screen scrolls by itself each time I type

I don't know why it happens or how to fix it. Even if I just type a single letter or even a space right away the screen scrolls up or down and it's really annoying. Please if anyone has a solution to this let me know! Regards

I have the same problem since a month a go, on two desk pc and one notebook.

Flipwared (talkcontribs)

This is incredibly annoying, it makes impossible using the translation tool. It happens using en -> es and es -> en on Chrome 84.0.4147.105 (64 bits) @ Windows 10 2004

Same problem

Same here when translating to Portuguese on Chrome.

Same, translating English -> Norwegian in Chrome.

Same problem with en-he pair and mk-he pair.

I made some testing and now it only seems to be happening while editing the first section of the article (the introduction). If you add a paragraph and start translating, it works great (es->en)

Thanks for the feedback.

Can anyone share any error messages that may appear in the Javascript console?

Flipwared (talkcontribs)

This is what my console stated, I don't think there are any error messages (just warnings):

I hope I'm sharing it the right way, first time I do this

Pginer-WMF (talkcontribs)

Thanks for the details @Flipwared.

I shared those with the engineers for further investigation.

I have been facing this issue for several months now. Using Chrome browser (Currently Version 85.0.4183.121).

My observation is it is generally happening when the paragraph just above the current one is empty or partially empty. More empty it is, greater the problem is.

EvaStaal (talkcontribs)

Exactly same problem when translating from English to Dutch. Like @Chaduvari says, especially when editing after empty paragraphs (which are very common for translating > my Dutch article is usually a lot shorter)

Flipwared (talkcontribs)

I agree, blank paragraphs seem to trigger the issue

NervaShuang (talkcontribs)

Same problem, translating English into Chinese in Chrome or other browsers

Originof (talkcontribs)

The same problem occurs to me, En-He

Ryomaandres (talkcontribs)

Hello! Same problem.

Smetanakaviar (talkcontribs)

This happens to me too, Ru-Sv. Seems to occur after an empty paragraph for me as well, in this case a template which fails to be translated from one language to the other
