WordPress decided that a new editor was in order. It's automatic-resizing no-scrollbar thing is broken as all hell.
Steps to reproduce ∞
- type "foo"
- press and hold enter until the editor resizes and "foo" is no longer seen. Notice that the editor resizes its height.
- type "bar"
"foo" is not seen.
In order to look at earlier or later text, the mouse must be moved into the editor area, and the user must manually scroll with a scroll wheel.
Attempts to solve ∞
I've checked my theme, and there's nothing in it relating to the editor.
I've tinkered with the style editor built into firefox to see if there's something I can remove to get scroll bars and a proper editor back, but I saw nothing. I lack the expertise to really get into this.
I do not need an automatically-resizing editor. I'm willing to return to earlier stuff. Although I can't find the option again, I do know there is an alternate editor option buried in there somewhere.
