 A minor issue.
 FF has implemented the resize property for boxes however FF devs have gone
 insane and set it true for textareas, this can have consequences for
 layouts due to the nature of resizing working at the dom level to inject
 inline styling.

 The whats-new-textarea group sets the textarea borders not on the actual
 textarea but on the parent thus if the corner grabhandle is moved
 horizontally there is no apparent resizing to be seen.

 This property is meant - according to the specs - to be defaulted to

 For bp-default it may make sense to add:

 textarea {resize: vertical;} || textarea {resize: none;}
 as a generic ruleset towards top of the main sheet. setting  min/max
 widths/heights is also an option to prevent layout breakage but these WILL
 need the !important keyword to override the applied styles FF adds

 In case this isn't clear I ranted about this on
