Put your cursor in a text submission form (like the QA contact in this form)
goto preferences. increase size of font.
If you increase the variable width font the text will take up more width but you
will now only be able to view the area of the old width (some of the text will
dissapear). If you increase the fixed width font you will be able to see the
entire new text, but only be able to highlight the text filling the old area.
(note this has been a problem for months, sorry for just reporting it now,
figured it would get fixed as the whole font system was being updated)

This looks like a consequence of bug #30199 "Changing fonts/font size in
preferences doesn't re-render the page"

I do not believe this is an editor bug, this seems more like a css/rendering 
issue. Asking buster where this one should go.

maybe a dup of 24343?

This bug has been marked "future" because we have determined that it is not 
critical for netscape6.0. 
If you feel this is an error, or if it blocks your work in some way -- please 
attach your concern to the bug for reconsideration.
Note: this bug might be a dup of 24343, which is nsbeta2+ because it's symptoms 
are more severe than those described here, so this may get fixed as a 
consequence of fixing 24343.
Target Milestone: M21 → Future
This is still a bug.  If I type more text than fits in a small text input, go to 
the beginning of that text, and then do "Enlarge Text Size", the font in the 
text input doesn't change until I start moving around in the input again.  
However, if I then go to the end of the text, it's cut off before the end.

cc:ing sfraser and erik in case they want this bug fixed before RTM

See also bug 47275 (same problem for view->text size).

Tested with Build 2001060504 win32 sea installer talkback trunk

This bug seems to have been fixed for <input type="text"> and <textarea>. But if
you change text size via the View->Text Size menu, all the <select> boxes height
does not change (related to line-height?).
Build reassigning Buster's bugs to Marc.

(comment number 10 in this bug)

indicates that this was fixed for all cases except when
using View-> Text Size menu, which seems to be covered
by bug 47275

would it be appropriate to close this bug and leave the
other standing, or to mark this as depending on bug 47275 ?
