Hey, it looks like you can resize the forum post/reply box -- there's a resize control on the bottom right that allows you to make it bigger or smaller.

How long has this been here? If it's new, consider this a PSA.

What browser/OS are you using? I don't seem to have that capability (OSX/Firefox 3).

It is some feature in FF4. When I upgraded to FF4 I noticed that in every blog/forum I'm participating. Not sure it serves any real need.

Must be this. FF3.6 on Linux at home isn't showing the magic.

Chrome uses same gecko-engine as FF, so it might be related.

Definitely not. But Firefox people copied almost all Chrome innovations for their FF4.

You are correct. Checked the web and Chrome seems to use Webkit, not gecko. I don't know where I have got the impression that Chrome uses same engine.

Mozilla products, especially Thunderbird, have been weakening for some time now. FF does upgrade their product a lot this year, but my experience this far has been that Mozilla "upgrading" just makes things worse. I hope I'm wrong.
