What did you do?

1. Visit any website (e.g.
2. Click on the page information button in the address bar.

What happened?

Page information box is cut off at the bottom (at the permissions part).

What should have happened?

Page info box should fully display all contents and show a bit of padding at the bottom.
Happens with the current 2017-05-27 Nightly, the 2017-05-26 one and I think the 2017-05-25 one too.
I don't have the shield on BMO with Nightly. Any website to have a large page information panel?

The shield comes from the tracking protection, which is enabled by default in the private browsing mode. I have it enabled everywhere. You can either open a new private window and visit any website, or enable tracking protection everywhere.
Then you should be able to reproduce the behavior.
I tried with FF55 and resolution at 100/125%, I can't reproduce it. I think it's related to your locale (DE) which displays some text on 2 lines in the identity panel.
Component: Page Info Window → Site Identity and Permission Panels
Thanks for reporting!

Can you confirm that this only occurs in Nightly and not in e.g. Beta or Release?

Summary: Page information box is cut off → Identity popup is cut off
Ok it's happening to me, too. I think I can reliably reproduce it when the tracking protection button is shown. Paolo, do you think this regressed with bug 1009116?

> Paolo, do you think this regressed with bug 1009116?

Yes, and the solution is to turn the <label> elements in the section into <description> elements (and update the styling rules). I can review a patch that does this quickly.
Ever confirmed: true

Sounds good, I'll do it then.

I have reproduced this Bug on Nightly 55.0a1 (2017-05-27)  on Windows 10, 64 Bit!

The bug's fix is now verified on latest  Nightly 55.0a1

Build ID 	20170601030206
User Agent 	Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:55.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/55.0

Let's make sure this works as intended on Mac and Linux as well. Flagging for additional regression testing.
