Thre is no solution to shorten this string for this locale. The line should wrap to two lines.

This is actually one of the best examples of bad design - apparently the idea is that every locale only needs 6 characters for ‘enable’ while in general, at least 1.3 x en-US width should be available for strings. And even then, vaulable space should not be wasted (by using horizontal switches).
Two notes on the screenshot: 
* "Find my Device" can be localized (just want to be sure it's a deliberate choice to keep it in English).
* Same problem in Italian, I'm just showing "Enable" near the switch, given the title and context is clear.

Yes. it’s deliberate allright - at least for now. When localized, the problem would even be bigger.

We've stopped shipping Firefox OS for phones. Thus resolving this as WONTFIX.
