Resize any text area in Firefox

The small size of textboxes and textareas in some websites/blogs makes it difficult to comment. This case can also occur while filling up an online application. We are unable to preview the complete contents in textareas/ boxes.

If you're a big typer who gets annoyed at small text areas when you're typing up your latest blog comment, the Resizeable Form Fields extension may be just what you're looking for. Resizeable is an add-on for Firefox which does the job of resizing any HTML form fields including textareas, select boxes, text fields, and iframes.

After installation, you can re size HTML forms fields horizontally or vertically or combined together.Just move your mouse to the border, and then resize?

This is great but I notice it doesn't seem to work in YouTube.

Re: Resize any text area in Firefox

If I do not design it that way, why would I want a user to manipulate a form?

current firefox versions 7.0-8.0 come with this resize for textareas built in. It makes some forms look like...

Is there an easy way to disable?
