Step
----

Make the <textarea> as wide as you can and then narrow it down slowly: try to horizontally-only narrow it down.


Actual
------

The right border of the <textarea> gets repainted intermittently, creating a residual painting trace


Expected
--------

The right border of the <textarea> should not be repainted intermittently, therefore it should not create a residual painting trace


Explanation
-----------

This layout issue can be reproduced in tests with 'writing-mode: horizontal-tb'. 
Other form controls can be affected by a resizing <textarea>; <input type="text"> can also start painting its left or right border intermittently as/if its horizontal position changes, moves leftwardedly (from right toward left)


Notes
-----

- Severity set to minor
- this spun from bug 1272997 comment 3 and bug 1272997 comment 5
- Another test with 'writing-mode: horizontal-tb' is coming up
- I am using Firefox 49.0a1 buildID=20160520030251
- I use Linux 3.13.0-86-generic x86_64, Qt: 4.8.6, KDE 4.13.3; Kubuntu (trusty) 14.04.4 LTS
- I've searched for duplicates and did not find any.

I do not know for sure if this bug affects Windows and/or Mac OS X. So, I'm marking this Linux-only for now.

Firefox 46.0.1 buildID=20160511224433 and Firefox 48.0a1 buildID=20160401175617 (both under Linux) also render actual results.
