Default stop horizontal scrolling in textarea in Firefox 2

I am developing my site in FF and when I type into the text area the text carries on in the one line and does not wrap down onto the next line.

However, it works fine in IE 7. I thought I had the fix with the CSS styling I added, but it does not work. Looking at this forum for example, i presume I am writing into a textarea (using FF and it has a working vertical scrollbar.


.textarea {
    overflow: scroll;
    overflow-y: scroll;
    overflow-x: hidden;

<textarea name="moreinfo" id="moreinfo" cols="45" rows="5" class="textarea"></textarea>
Cheers, Picco
