[Tracking Requested - why for this release]: regression
in-content prefs is not shipping in 34. Dropping tracking.
I don't think this blocks the in-content prefs from being shipped. It is something we should fix though.

During triage we had decided to keep this on the blocker list.
This is a bug that affects all firefox resizers. If you resize a text area, you'll get the same problem.

That's not entirely true. The problem exists with all *centered* textareas. For example, the problem does not reproduce with:
data:text/html,<textarea></textarea>

But does reproduce with:
data:text/html,<center><textarea></textarea>

I filed bug 1105906 to cover the general issue here. We kept it as a blocker for IcP because it is pretty noticeable with the preferences, even though it is not a new regression.
De-listing this from the hard-blocker bug tracking since this bug only uncovers an already existing issue in the platform and this is a polish-related bug that doesn't prohibit usage of the in-content preferences.
