Attached image screenshot of issue
On youtube app or on browser and go to, some video title text appear cutoff on the right on the video list view.

1) Open browser and go to (or use youtube app)
2) On youtube's search field, search for 'minecraft'
3) Observe the search result page

Expected: Text appears correctly. If it's too long it should be truncated correctly.

Actual: Some video titles are cutoff on the right. See screenshot.

I'd been tied up doing another task. This affects 2.2 as well. Will do the rest of branch checking tomorrow. NI myself.

pinging djf for insight.  Do you think it's a tech evangelism bug since it's been around for a while?

I've never worked on the browser app, so I don't have any particular insight into this. I'd try visiting in Firefox for Android. If you get the same result, then it is probably a youtube bug. You could also try a desktop browser in responsive mode with a small screen size, I suppose.

If you can only see this truncation in FirefoxOS, then maybe someone on the SystemsFE team can take a look and see if it is a bug int he FirefoxOS browser app.

Aaron, does this bug exist in Android or IOS as well?

Teo can check on Android. iOS -> WebKit

Tested with:
Device: Alcatel One Touch (Android 4.1.2)
Browsers: left Chrome and right latest Nightly
Flags: needinfo?(teodora.vermesan)
Component: Gaia::Browser → Mobile
Product: Firefox OS → Tech Evangelism
Based on the screenshot from Comment 7, reassigning it to tech evangelism bug
Since this also affects Chrome Mobile, it appears to be just a design decision--not really a compat issue.
