Description Peter Simons 2002-07-07 01:20:09 UTC
I know this is probably the wrong address to report this to, but I'll do it
anyway, hoping that you can help. :-)

The text field used to enter bug reports -- in which I am writing this text
right now, uses a rather large width setting. As a result, I can never so the
whole line of the text I write, even though my browser window isn't exactly
tiny. Would it be possible to change the defaults so that this field is a bit
narrower? 75 characters per line maybe? Or even better: Couldn't this text field
adapt to the width of the browser window, so that it fits on the screen on any

are you using konqueror?
Comment 2 Peter Simons 2002-07-08 07:16:17 UTC
No, Mozilla 1.x.
Comment 3 John Davis (zhen) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-12-15 21:14:20 UTC
Are you still experiencing this problem with newer versions of Mozilla?
Comment 4 Peter Simons 2002-12-16 02:31:34 UTC
Yes. Using Mozilla 1.1 the text field I'm using right now still exceeds my
window width.

I am working on fixing this, and just for information's sake, what res are you
running in?

Comment 6 Peter Simons 2002-12-18 03:56:23 UTC
I am using a 813x722 sized window. But it appears that _now_ the witdth is
correct. This text field now is sized exactly right.

Well, I am closing this bug then. I am allowing votes on this, so have the other
people vote on this bug if it is fixed for them also.
