    Has any fix ever been found to make plain text boxes auto-expand correctly in any browsers other than IE

    I got a familiar report on an old form. None of the text boxes expand so people can read the contents correctly on browsers like Chrome, FireFox, etc. In my other systems that still use lots of InfoPath forms... i have the forms embedded in a form viewer web part in sharepoint, and there is hidden code on the page to make the boxes work properly. The forms i'm having the problem with, i never built a system to have them open embedded in a page... so that option doesn't work for me. Did they ever implement some fix or method that infopath forms will correctly resize (make multiline) text boxes in modern browsers?

    and barring that fix.... it's been a long time.. but does anyone remember how to construct a link that would basically tell an infopath form to open on a web part page with the infopath form webpart on it?

    There is a CSS hack for this. If you're hosting your form in SharePoint and want the line to wrap, include this in the Alternate CSS file for your SharePoint site: /*Fix word breaks in text areas*/ textarea{ white-space: pre-line !important; }
