Increase width of 'Enter a tag prefix' textbox for prefix of autotagged category names of feed articles


(MailNews Core :: Feed Reader, defect)

Windows 8.1
Not set


(Not tracked)

Thunderbird 33.0


(Reporter: aryx, Assigned: aryx)



(1 file, 2 obsolete files)

Windows 8.1
Daily and Aurora

The feed subscription dialog has an option to autotag feed items with category elements and prefix these (bug 946279). Localizations of the placeholder text can be longer than the English text, so please increase the width of the textbox.


English: "Enter a tag prefix"
German: "Anfangstext für Schlagwörter eingeben", gets only shown as "Anfangstext für Schlagwör" and hasn't been uploaded yet
hmm, looks like the seamonkey translation is much shorter..  (but less good imo).

you can add a width="300" to the textbox if you like.

Could you do that with CSS instead? We're trying to slowly move away from this XUL/HTML 4 sizing and styling.

sorry for the nits, but.

1. 300 was selected precisely; it accomodates the longest string (Tb de), if you check localizations.. making this very large, or having it flex=1 the full width, doesn't look good as the value is certainly a very short token.

2. if you put it in css files, please note a better organization is to go outer to inner and top to bottom, box model element wise.  so i'd put the rule second from last, not first.

3. css is the way to go, but if there were any exception it could be for xul width/height, for this specific situation.  ie, you now have to add it to 3 Tb files, and to be polite, you should also add it to suite/ css and get separate review.  but it's totally josiah's call.

Yes, please move this entire rule down quite a ways, and change the value to 300px.
