[Affected versions]:
- latest Nightly 58.0a1 (2017-10-31)
- Beta 57.0b13 (20171030163911)

[Affected platforms]:
- Windows 10 x64
- macOS 10.13
- Ubuntu 16.04 x64

[Steps to reproduce]:
1. Start Firefox.
2. Resize the browser's width to the minimum.
3. Type some long characters (~15) in the awesome bar. 

[Expected result]:
- There's no change in position for the search suggestion panel and nav bar buttons, when characters reaches the URL's right side limit.

[Actual result]:
- As soon as the characters reaches the URL's right side limit, the navigation bar buttons ("Back", "Forward", "Reload", "Home") are pushed to the left, as well as the suggestion panel.

[Regression range]:
- Not reproducible on FF 56.0 (20170926190823), I will get back with a regression range asap.

[Additional notes]:
- see the attached screencast

The fundamental issue here is that we're allowing you to resize the window below the minimum size of the nav-bar. Even if I set:

#nav-bar {
min-width: 1000px;
}

we allow this (but then it looks even worse).

Dan, how do I enforce a higher minimum width for the entire window from within CSS?

I have no idea how the minimum size of the window itself gets determined -- sorry.

The window's minimum width is set near the top of browser.css :
