I have tried to lower the number to 4, then I saw 5 rows. There is one more row being displayed than I typed into the row attribute. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: <textarea rows="5" cols="40"> 1 2 3 4 5 6 </textarea> Actual Results: I can see row 6 on the screen Expected Results: I should only see rows 1 to 5, with row 6 being outside of the current viewport. I have reproduced this in Mozilla 1.7.7 and Firefox 1.0.3. The only work around that I have at this stage to obtain cross browser compatability with IE and Opera is to set the height with CSS to a fixed value.
Can you attach a testcase ? (using the create new attachment link in this bug)
I believe this is a duplicate of bug 33654
Whiteboard: DUP of bug 33654
Its possible its a duplicate. I did search for duplicates but didn't come across that one in my search. This problem I'm reporting though is based on the default font. Bug 33654 seems to be related more to variable width font, wheras the default font is monospaced. Hence I would have thought it would be easy to calculate the line height thereby calculate the box height. At a guess, I would say that its allowing for the height of the horizontal scrollbar when the default wrapping behaviour doesn't allow for the horizontal scrollbar to exist at all.

Reading bug 33654, I still think this is a dupe. Feel free to disagree and reopen :). *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 33654 ***
