confluence screen jumps while editing

While trying to edit content, the screen while move around in a very random way. It's as if the cursor jumped to another section and back. It seems as if it is related to using Warning, Note, TIP and Info macros, but we can't reproduce it 100%.

Kindly check with recent plugin added OR macro added. 'Jumping of screen' is sign of invalid macro OR plugin added. Check developer mode of Chrome (F12) OR firefox to investigate.

I got the same issue here since a year ago.

It's easier to avoid such things when I use Firefox.

Chrome-based browsers (Opera, Vilvadi, Chrome, Chromium, Maxthon...) would have something like these all the time.

But in my case, I choose to use Firefox to publish copy-paste content, and Chrome-based browsers to do the editing all the time. (even with the same annoying problem) 


Looks like this bug has been around for quite some time in one form or another.

I have found the easiest ways to side step this problem is

1. start typing on the line - sometimes that brings the cursor focus back to where you are typing.

2. if that doesnt work then hit SAVE then start editting again. It seems to clear whatever glitch is causing the cursor to get stuck.

However I really dont understand why this bug hasnt been fixed

Mine was solved due to a plugin. I really don't remember that anymore 'what the plugin was'. But goes for a plugin which is in use while editing.
