We should decrease the top padding of the modal so that it is fully visible on the screen without having to scroll. As seen in the screenshot, the 'skip' call-to-action is not immediately visible.

For default screen resolution on Mac High Sierra 1440 x 900 - for localized text, start browsing button falls off the screen and when scrolled shows in white text.

To test set intl.l10n.pseudo config to accented

This issue is replicable and more prominent for lower resolution 1280 x800 and below in all locales

Looks like bug 1552195 added a max-height which makes the modal shrink for smaller screens but the content still wants the larger/static height.

So this can be fixed by setting the overflow for the modal - what would the preferred behavior be? Do we want the overflowing content to be hidden, or do we want to be able to scroll the modal content to see the button on small resolutions?

The previous behavior was to have the modal be the desired height and allow the user to scroll down. Sounds like aaron is suggesting we shift up the modal as well.

I have verified that the issue is no longer reproducible on the latest Nightly 70.0a1 (Build ID 20190713215744) on Windows 10, macOS 10.14, and Arch Linux 14.4.3.
We're still going to have the "Start Browsing" button be under the view port on screen resolutions under 1000x800, but it's not cut off by the border.


Is this something we should consider backporting to Beta or can this ride the trains?

What's your call on this one Aaron? Do we need to uplift

Flags: needinfo?(emcminn) → needinfo?(abenson)

Given that this occurs in one of our more common screen resolutions, I think we should uplift.

Please nominate this for Beta approval when you get a chance.
