Story "description" edit window is truncated/not functioning

Story "description" edit window is truncated/not functioning

Having just uploaded a story incorporating a "description", I discovered (while attempting to "edit" that description) that the description edit window will not accommodate the entirety of the original text.

This "edit" size limitation is rather odd given the larger "description" parameters made available with an original upload. Is it addressable?

Update: I've just realized that my ability to edit anything in the "description" window is no longer functional, either in Firefox or IE9.

Can anyone confirm this or is it just me?

It's not just you. It has been like that as long as I have used Ancestry (2+ years). I usually delete the story and re-enter/upload with a shorter description.

Thanks. I rarely upload stories and was unaware of this quirk.

Returning to this issue, the formerly functional story "edit" window does appear to be broken...at least in the latest Firefox and IE browsers. Just how long it has been broken I've no idea (nor little concern), but it is decidedly...

...broken.
