When combined with the mozilla.org sidebar, the bugzilla helper page is very
wide and requires a browser window width of at least 840 pixels (at least with
the fonts I'm using here), requiring most users to repeatedly scroll
horizontally to read the content.  The preformatted parts could be broken up
differently so that the rest of the page need not be so wide.
This'll get fixed when someone rewrites the helper as a template for enter_bug.cgi.

Bug 103953 is fixed.  Can we resolve this?

Nope, the page is still >800 pixels wide (I need to resize to 845 pixels to make
the horizontal scrollbar go away).
Bugzilla Helper is no more! The new and improved simple bug entry form is:
http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/enter_bug.cgi?format=guided

Please see if the width of the new one is more to your liking.

I have to make my browser window 857 pixels wide (more than a full screen width
for some people) in order not to get a horizontal scrollbar on the list of
mostfreq bugs -- which makes it hard to read the mostfreq list and reduces the
liklihood that people will actually read through those bugs.  The rest of the
page resizes nicely, though.

I guess that means I should reopen the bug?  Or did the wontfix apply to the new
page as well?  If so, go ahead and close it again.

There's not much I can do to make the mostfreq table any thinner. The iframe
it's in is marked "width: 100%". Did you try reloading when you shrunk the window?

The usual complaints about width were because of <pre>, which I've now
eliminated, so I think we've got as far as we can...

I won't be taking any further action based on this bug. Sorry :-(
