Currently, we cannot see input text on the editor of twitter.com if the text is overflown from it.

twitter.com has changed their editor behavior. The editor is specified overflow:hidden;. According to the CSS spec, user shouldn't be scrollable such element by user's operation. However, other browsers can scroll editor even if it's specified overflow:hidden;.

The editor used to be resized its size by script when editing text is overflown from the editor. However, this behavior has been removed. This is the cause of this bug.

Only on m-c and Aurora, we landed patches which make users be able to scroll editor even if the editor is specified overflow:hidden;. However, not on beta yet. See bug 795785.

I believe this is fixed. Overflow-y is set to auto. Closing.
