Firefox resets <textarea>'s size if user resizes it by Double
Clicking on resizer and then moving the mouse
STR: (Win7_64, Nightly 43, 32bit, ID 20150920030217, new profile, safe mode) 1. Open the following "data:" url or click URL in the form above > data:text/html,<textarea> 2. Move mouse over the textarea's resizer [now don't move mouse until Step 4] 3. Press left mouse button, after ~0.1 seconds release left mouse button, then after ~0.1 seconds press left mouse button again (so, just perform DoubleClick without releasing mouse in the end) 4. Move mouse to another position to resize <textarea> 5. Release left mouse button. Result: You see textarea in step 4 resizing when you move mouse. However, after performing Step 5 <textarea> restores its old dimentions. Expectations: Textarea should be resized in a normal way This is very annoying long-standing bug.

This is still reproducible on Nightly 45 (20151205030208). Are you sure that you performed STR correctly? Additionally: Firefox always resizes textarea to "initial" sise on simple doubleclick on the dropmarker. Have you seen at least that behavior?
Yes, I am able to reproduce this. Thanks. There are related bug[1105906,1200031]. Not sure if this is duplicate.
