large Windows font size causes unexpected margins above one-off search items
The new search bar suggestions list is cut off at the bottom; see screenshot. I have a larger window font size specified in the Windows font size settings; I suspect this is the cause.
Summary: New search drop-down is cut off → large Windows font size causes unexpected margins above one-off search items
For some reason, a larger default font size changes the height of the lines in the <description> node where the one-off buttons are. I don't understand why that behavior happens as there's no text there, but setting the line-height to 0 (or anything <= 18px) makes the bug disappear.

Attachment #8533733 - Flags: review?(felipc)
Note for people trying to reproduce this bug: the font size settings are non-trivial to find on Windows 7. All the obvious ways to change the text size actually change the DPI setting, which increases the icon sizes at the same time and doesn't reproduce the bug. The way I've found to change the font size (and only the font size) is to search for "color" in the Control Panel, then click on "Change window colors and metrics", and there change the "Message Box" font size (I set it to 12px).
[Tracking Requested - why for this release]: the patch is trivial and the issue here may make the new search UI look really unpolished for a (hopefully small) portion of our Windows users.

Verified on Nightly 37.0a1 2014-12-12 after setting the font size as comment 2 suggests. The suggestions looks fine now, but at a lower width of the browser, the "Change Search Settings" button is cut off.
(In reply to Petruta Rasa [QA] [:petruta] from comment #10) > at a lower width of the > browser, the "Change Search Settings" button is cut off. This is a different known issue (but I don't remember if we have a bug on file for it or not).
I could only find bug 1104748 which was already fixed, so I logged bug 1111638 to cover this. The issue no longer occurs in Developer Edition 36.0a2 2014-12-15.
