The descenders, part of a letter/character below the baseline (e.g.: j, g, y), disappears when typng text in an input field of one line (height=1 line or rule)
I can't find the specific component that causes the problem.
In safemode the problem is not always (not on every OS/ version) resolved)
With firebug extension I can see that the div-height is not correct (too small), but if the site was poorly designed it shouldn't be resolved in safe mode. And I see the problem also on Facebook's status input field (which I don't think is poorly designed).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Find one line text input field (like status on facebook)
2. type letters with a descender (eg: j or g)
3. Look at result
Actual Results:  
the descenders are cut off

Expected Results:  
the descenders should be visible 

Happens on both my computers (Win 7, Fx 4.0 | Ubuntu 10.10, Fx 3.6.16)

On Win7 Fx 4.0:
In safe mode the results are correct (descenders are visible)
When manually disabling all extensions the results are wrong (descenders cut off)

On Ubuntu 10.10 Fx 3.6.16
Both safe mode and manually disabling all extensions show wrong results (descenders cut off)

What styles are they applying to that field?  It sounds like they're just explicitly styling it to not be tall enough...
Whiteboard: DUPEME
I have no idea what style is applied to the field... (I'm no webdesigner/programmer) div innerWrap has height set to 16px but should be more like 18px?
I was wondering if it's just me encoutering this? I suppose not as I have it on 2 computers. 
It's not only on facebook but I'll try to add other websites where I encounter the issue.
If you can post a public URI that shows the problem, that would be great, yes.
Problem seems to have solved itself. I'm not encountering it any more.
