I have current version of firefox installed. In Windows 8, my form fields that have a textarea with default settings for resize no longer show the 3 dots in lower right to resize the window. No CSS conflicts of any sort.

Can you post a link to a publicly accessible page that doesn't require authentication (signing on)?

If that isn't possible then can you post the code that is used?

I also rejoiced when the resize "grip" appeared on input textareas a couple of Firefox versions ago.

However, more and more web sites found out how to disable the resize grip by setting the CSS style property "resize" to "none". So the resize grip which I got very used to is fading into obscurity.

That's sad. I want to be able to resize a text input area whenever I may see fit.

I'd prefer if Firefox would let me globally (e.g. about:config) disable the "resize" CSS property to get the resize grip back on input textareas.

You can right-click in the text area and open the Inspector (Firefox/Tools > Web Developer;Ctrl+Shift+I).

Disable the resize:none rule.


Add code to the userContent.css file.

The customization files userChrome.css (user interface) and userContent.css (websites) are located in the chrome folder in the Firefox profile folder.

textarea { resize: both !important; }
