Home Forums CSS Textarea + overflow:hidden + (Firefox or Opera) = wonkey! Re: Textarea + overflow:hidden + (Firefox or Opera) = wonkey!


Yep,this doesn’t seem to happen in any of the Windows browsers I’ve tested (IE6, IE7, FF3, Chrome), which is what leads me to believe it’s a bug rather than just another lovely quirk.

in Firefox and Opera on the mac I get scrollbars because the height of <body> is being expanded to where the
<textarea> is relative to the <body> – but I shouldn’t because the <textarea> is in a div that is the child of another div that is set to be 500px high and is styled with overflow:hidden;
