    Text Area Field Autoresizing In FireFox

    Asked by lastfrontierheli on July 24, 2013 at 02:17 PM

    Can I stop textareas from getting larger when the user selects the field?

    I have several textareas under the "Medical Information" section, when you select one it gets larger and messes up the layout.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    Your form seems to be working fine on my end upon checking. Please take a look at this video: http://www.screencast.com/t/t1diClAcR

    Hi pinoytech,

    Thanks for your reply. I just checked and it appears the issue only happens in Firefox. The textarea boxes get larger when you select them.

    Any ideas?

    I was able to replicate the same issue you are experiencing. Please try injecting the CSS code below in your form style and see if it resolves the issue.

    textarea { height:47px; width:202px; }

    To inject a custom css in your form styles, go to Setup & Embed > Preferences > Form Styles.

    If you need further assistance, please contact us again.
