[Affected platforms]:

[Steps to reproduce]:
1. Enable the search bar from about:preferences#search by clicking on "Add search bar in toolbar" option
2. Input any characters inside the search bar that provide long suggestion strings (eg. htt)
3. Observe the dropdown suggestion list
4. Reduce the width of the browser
5. Click inside the search bar in order to expand the dropdown suggestion list again 
6. Observe once again the dropdown suggestion list

[Expected result]:
- The strings are truncated according with the resided panel.

[Actual result]:
- The strings are not truncated properly, for most of them the ellipsis are missing.

[Regression range]: 
- I will try to determine one as soon as possible)

[Additional Notes]:

Drew, I think this very old regression is either a P3 or P5, do you agree?

I don't have much spare cycles these days and investigating why this happens is potentially complex, for a very small gain.

Priority: -- → P5
Yes, and IIRC this might be a dupe, although I may be thinking of a different popup-width-related bug.
Flags: needinfo?(adw)
Updating tracking flags as we get closer to the 64 release. Regression caused by a patch in 60 so ESR is impacted.
