i want to file this separately from bug 124258, since some of this might not
actually be the cause of the content-not-fitting issue --and it makes it easier
for me at least to track. ;)

however, do let me know if any of these should be broken out into separate bug

[if i don't specify a particular widget, assume that the following apply to
all/most items in the panel.]

a. checkbox text. one of the obvious issues is that text associated with
checkboxes should fit on as few lines as possible. will attach a screenshot
soon. here are the panels affected in this manner:

* Appearance top-level panel
* Colors panel
* Navigator top-level panel: not sure if current display is fine, however
* Smart Browsing panel, "enable internet keywords" checkbox
* Tabbed Browsing panel
* Composer top-level panel, "maintain table layout..." checkbox
* Mail & Newsgroups top-level panel
* Message Display panel
* Message Composition panel, "check spelling before sending"
* Addressing panel
* Cookies panel
* Passwords panel
* SSL panel
* Advanced top-level panel
* Debug top-level panel
* Debug > Events panel
* Debug > Networking panel

b. radiobutton text. similar to (a), but for text associated with radiobuttons.

* Colors panel, "use my colors, ignoring..." radiobutton
* Navigator top-level panel
* Composer top-level panel
* Composer > New Page Settings panel
* Message Display panel
* Send Format panel, "ask me what to do..." radiobutton
* Cookies panel
* Images panel
* Master Passwords panel
* Certificates panel
* Validation panel, "do not use OSCP..." radiobutton
* Cache panel
* Mouse Wheel panel
* Offline & Diskspace panel

c. a less obvious issue is that in some cases there's too little vertical space
btwn buttons, as seen in

* Languages panel: btwn "move up" and "move down", as well as "add" and "remove"
* Helper Applications panel: btwn the "new type", "edit" and "remove" buttons

Gail, Jen, and Marlon-please come up with a larger default size for the prefs
dialog box that will fix this and other similar bugs/issues. Not approving yet.
If we get the prefs d.b. bigger, it should fix this bug. 
please check these panels now that 124258 has been fixed. my bet is that 90% of
the problem has gone away.

issues listed under (a) and (b) look resolved, yay!

(c) button spacing is still an issue.

d. another observation: the menulist bubble [er, header] for dpi in the Font
panel isn't wide enough to display its text.

pushing to 1.0.1.  I imagine some of the remaining issues will be 
resolved when Ben increases the default size of the prefs panels.
