Description of problem:
When attempting to have a thorough description of the bug that is in progress,
the limited size of the description box makes it more difficult to read an
entire paragraph to ensure you've got the concept nailed down.  It is currently
limited to 4 rows in height.  It would be beneficial to have a larger
description box to reduce the amount of scrolling necessary to proofread a long

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Look at the description box.

Actual Results:  Description box is 4 rows in height.

Expected Results:  Description box should be more like 8 rows in height.

Any update on this?

Comment 2 David Lawrence 2002-12-09 22:13:12 UTC
I am not following this bug properly. I have the text box on the bug entry form
set to 15 rows and the size set to 10 rows on the edit already submitted bug form.
I do not see the 4 rows you are reporting in Mozilla or Netscape. Can you
elaborate on where you are seeing this?

Oh that page ;) Ok, I have increased it to 15 to be like the old bug submission
page's description field. Reopen if not satisfactory.
