Overview: No scrollbar on Mail & Newsgroups Account Setting dialog.
When decrease size of the dialog, some controls become not visible.

Steps to reproduce: Retrieve Mail & Newsgroups Account Setting dialog. Decrease
size by dragging for the corner. Observe that a small window does not have all
fields, controls. No scroll bars.

Actual Results: If we allow resizing, scroll bars would be helpful.

Expected Results: No cutted controls/fields. Consistency in displaying dialogs.

Additional Information: Preferences dialog can not be resized.
Other dialogs to consider: 'Search Messages' (bug 8709), Options|Select
Addresses. What is our intention?

you're referring to the right-hand side of the panel, yes? iirc, we had decided
[at least for the regular Preferences dlg] to not implement scrollbars for the
right-hand side of the panel. there's a bug marked wontfix or invalid on this,
but i cannot seem to find it.

i recommend wontfix for this --but, jen, what do you think?
Agree. Account Settings dialogs should be a fixed size, just like Prefs.
I change Summary to emphasize that Acct Setting win should have fixed size.
Summary: Some controls become not visible when decrease size of the dialog → Account Settings dialogs should be a fixed size
I noticed that there is bug 89212 with the same issue.
