Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates


On Stack Overflow (and lots of other websites too, unfortunately), Firefox 4 beta (at least versions 4.0b4pre-b6pre) automatically adds a resize handle to text areas, which is probably not what you would want it to do, and it is a bit annoying to have when it obviously shouldn't be there.


This is most likely because the resize CSS property for text areas is set to both by default in HTML text areas in Firefox 4 beta, instead of none, like most other browsers.

I like the resize handle. What is the peril in leaving it there? – Robert Harvey Sep 2 '10 at 14:52
I've always had that resize handle in Safari. Love it, and it's not giving me any issues whatsoever. – Arjan Sep 2 '10 at 14:54

The handle is in Chrome as well, I like it and I use it.

The only bug iIencounter with it is moving it under a question's hyperlink on the right of the page, but that is equally a user error.

If it ain't broke, Don't fix it.

Betas are not officially supported.

Though true, that's not really the issue here. – uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Sep 2 '10 at 18:22
