Data Assist update/insert pages with large Text area

This is a new puzzle. It has always worked in the past. Attached is a screen shot that shows the issue. by comparing two different sites.

Using a largeTextArea field, the font is different, and it keeps going on and on horizontally instead of staying within the field. I've doubled check the usual suspects, ie, re-upped the correct rsobj and queryobj, checked ht access to
ErrorDocument 404 /404.html

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} !^443$
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/_mmServerScripts/.*
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]
</IfModule>

I compared the code on a working form and the non-working form and can't spot it.

I'm missing something that I have done forever correctly.

The CSS must be overwriting the default wrap functionality:

You can probably just update the css or add an inline style to get the word wrapping the way you want it. If I could view it on the web I could tell you the exact css setting.

Thanks Ray. I turns out to work fine on Safari but not FireFox.
Checking older sites shows same: fine in Safari but not FireFox. So it's been an issue all along but I didn't see it since Safari used to be my default.
Odd. Link in PM.

Update https://www.swiftglobalresults.com/webassist/forms/fd_cool_default.css line 520.

You will see:
whitespace: pre

change it to:
white-space: break-spaces;

I only use COOL default and have edited to move to black instead of grey fonts for us old guys to see better. Will you be issuing any new tweaks that address this FF bug in future? If so, can you also go to black instead of grey fonts? I just replace with my own default, but it is an extra step. Just on wish list: simple black and white DA theme.
