Resizing form text areas on web pages

Sometimes you run into forms on web pages that have text boxes that are too small for your liking. Is there any way to resize them?

If you have Firefox 1.5 or higher, the answer is yes!

First, install Greasemonkey. I love it, and this article will explain why you should love it too.

Visit this page on to get a script called “Textarea_drag_resize”. Click on the link to the .js file and Greasemonkey will automatically detect and install it. You may need to activate it by right-clicking the monkey icon in the lower right of the Firefox frame, and selecting the new script. It will take effect immediately, and add a convenient draggable icon on every textarea element.
