If a toolbar section with a dropdown box (currently only the "headings" dropdown in the "advanced" section) is opened, closed, then reopened, the dropdown will appear underneath the editing textarea, making it unusable.
I've observed this personally on FF 3.6.3, and one other user has noted it on FF 2.0.

See [[WP:VPT#Citation tool not working after site redesign]] for another user complaining about it, on FF and Chrome.

OK, so as this seems be the same - the problem seems to be related to the fact that the element with "sections" class has hidden overflow or to be more exact it gets overflow:hidden as soon as the section is opened after opening something else. E.g.:
1. Open "Advanced".
2. Open "Help".
3. Open "Advanced".
4. Use dropdown for headings.
And as said on 23782 changing overflow to "visible" works for me, but I'm not sure why was it overflow:hidden added in the first place. Still it seems reasonable to set overflow to visible as soon as a section is fully opened (and correct height is set).
