    Typing in forum boxes is very difficult.....

    the virtual keyboard opens, then closes when I touch the box. it does this until I am able to type with the dock keyboard....it tskes more than 3 times.....this only seems to happen in forums....

    Welcome to VBulletin-based forums! :-)
    It's a sometimes maddening problem with some touchscreen browsers. Careful typing seems to help.Editing an old post can be nearly impossible. And some forums are worse than others, it seems to depend on how much local tweaking to the forum software they do.
    But it's always a VBulletin forum. Other forum software seem to work better.

    Was impossible for me to open a new thread on my Vivo Tab. Had to go to my desktop to do so. Highly frustrating!

    Are you using the browser in Modern UI or desktop mode?

    Windows 8 Modern UI supports auto pop up of the virtual keyboard but the desktop doesn't... So that could be the cause...

    If that doesn't help then you can try a timed double tap method... First tap to initiate the keyboard, and as soon as you see it pop up from the bottom of the screen then just tap again in the text box... Seems to help a bit...

    I am using IE Modern. I've tried double touch but that doesn't seem to help. I'll try opening in the Desktop IE to see if that makes a difference.

    its actually a triple touch. once to click in the editing box and then two quick taps to keep the keyboard up. this timing is tricky but doable.
