Screenshot of bug

I have seen many accounts on Bugzilla that edit their Real Name field to include periods of inactivity or other status-related messages.

Depending on where the account has this information, it can be readable or non-readable in the dropdown. This can be important information to know when requesting needinfo or review from someone, for example.

See the attached screenshot.

We should make the dropdown expand horiztonally to show the full message text, or increase the width of the textbox by about 150 pixels to cover most use cases.

No way at all to tell if there's PTO text at the end!

This is sorta ugly, but it's simple and it works. The alternative solution is to patch jquery-autocomplete.

sorry this took so long; as this impacts all autocompletion fields it needed more than just a rubber stamp.
