User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:14.0) Gecko/20120330 Firefox/14.0a1

Steps to reproduce:

In recent versions of nightly, the behavior of textareas with style "overflow: hidden" has changed in a very unusable way.


Actual results:

When text is longer than the textarea, I hit the "end" key or arrows, etc. to move to the end of the existing text. The cursor disappears and is hidden.


Expected results:

I think it's taking "hidden" too literally now - the old behavior is that the entire text is moved around such that the cursor position is still in the textarea's viewable space. It just happens to do that without a scrollbar. I can't see what I'm typing, now, and I should be able to see it.

I'm not sure how recently this changed, it may have been a month or more.

I'm mistaken, I was doing the opposite test that I thought I was.
