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"
Reassigning as per Don, who asks "what should be done with this?"
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.
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?).

http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=34271#c10 (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 ? -matt
