textarea.

Another nasty consequence of this (just tested on Meta) is that, as soon as you click in the text area and type something, the area itself suddenly expands and the save buttons are no longer where you remember/expect them to be. If you only have to change something small, it's quite annoying because click becomes impossible, you must use shortcuts. (Also, the buttons usually go outside the screen at this point, but that's another matter.)
