(Whiteboard: [UI bug])

Reproducible on: Firefox 42.0a1, Firefox 41.0a2 and Firefox 40.0b6 across all platforms

1. Start Firefox.
2. Click Hello icon.
3. Start a conversation.
4. From conversation window click 'Add some context'.
5. Edit the Conversation name entering a string longer than 45 characters (e.g. Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis )
6. Check the Conversation name in the Loop Panel

In Loop Panel should be displayed a limited number of characters, interrupted by ellipsis (e.g. Pneumonoultramicroscopicsi...). Hovering on the conversation name, an explanatory tooltip panel should appear, displaying the entire conversation name. 

A Scroll Bar is displayed in Loop Panel when the conversation name is a string composed from minimum 45 characters.

I forgot to mention that this issue is not a regression.
what would we prefer long conversation names do?

Trail off to elipses at the end as suggested above. I believe this was specified elsewhere in a bug (but I can't for the life of me remember which bug).

I'm pretty sure this has been fixed (now that room names follow document titles, they are frequently very long, and seem to be truncated properly)
