In the 10/05 build the enter master password dialog was fine.
In the 10/08 build the text wraps,which causes the buttons to be cropped.
I'm attaching two screenshots.
Note that PSM code (including code for this dialog) has not changed in weeks.

Adding PDT to the status whiteboard to raise the visibility of this bug. I am
seeing this as well. (I'll try to add screen shots as I encounter clipped dialog
boxes.) This is a visible regression that makes the application look very

The dialogs appear to function correctly. They cannot, however, be resized to
eliminate the clipping at the bottom.

Some dialogs that are *not* clipped include the "Would you like Netscape 6 to be
your default browser" dialog, and the mail server password dialog.

Not sure why the difference.

This will be particularly bad in European languages that will take more space
than English does, making the clipping even worse. I vote for fixing this in the

this looks like a XUL issue, that we need to resolve pretty quickly for 094.

is this size to content fix needed for another bug so we may need to reopen
another bug?

I own the other bug and it's still open: bug 92635.

Comment 17

It's open because it is not checked into the Trunk, not because it has not been

Right. As a matter of fact, it was only checked into the 0.9.4 branch. I will
try to come up with a different "hack" for that bug, but I'd say we take this
partial back-out (the other part of the checkin was valid) to fix this way more
visible bug.
