In the template dialog, the boxes for pre-existing, long parameters should be expanded before you click on them in Firefox

Description

This is related to bug 61289.

When you open a template that contains a lot of data, you should already be able to read everything in the full, expanded boxes. If thhe data takes four lines to display in the box, then you should see all four lines immediately, Uou should not get template parameter boxes that are 1.5 lines tall until you click inside the box.


Version: unspecified
Severity: minor

I am afraid this is still not happening in Firefox.
As Fram pointed out, "Example: Contra (album) [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Contra_(album)?veaction=edit ], go to the "professional ratings", and explore. Parameters "rev10score" or "rev2score" do not indicate that a second line follows: parameters "rev3score" and "rev5score" give a sudden scrollbar when you click in them, because they are longer than 2 lines."

Ruddy Firefox bugs.

Doesn't appear fixed. In fact, the parameters don't seem to expand at all, and do not have vertical scrollbars.

The underlying issue is that Firefox does not support the DOMNodeInsertedIntoDocument event, which we rely on to do the initial size adjustment. The event is actually deprecated, and we're planning to replace it with something else (T64174), so I'll mark that as another blocker.
