I guess this is basically bug 1548784?

That's right the height of the panel causes this issue.
Last time we discussed bug 1548784 it wasn't obvious if we can actually make the height fluid because of the animation used to show the message (in more detail: there is a fixed height container that either shows the purple message or a screenshot of the page being bookmarked. There is a animation where the purple message slides over the screenshot. The fixed height is required in order to keep things from moving up/down).

We might keep both bugs open, fix this one by working around the issue: smaller font size, smaller margins.

margin values adjusted, "ru" preview.

margin values adjusted, "en-US" preview

[Tracking Requested - why for this release]: this feature looks pretty terrible in Russian.

:mcoman, have you tested other locales and/or have you found any other issues?

Hi Tim, I have tested this issue on multiple Firefox locales, especially on the ones with long text strings (e.g. it, de) and with non-Latin characters (e.g. el, uk, zh-CN), but I have not managed to reproduce it. For now, the only affected build that I've found is the "ru" locale.

If this really only affects Russian I wonder if the "exclude RU through remote targeting" option is the way to go for 68, vs crash-landing a fix straight to mozilla-release. wdyt?

That sounds like a plan, Julien. We will make the change to disable RU remotely, but leave this bug open to track the fix for 69

I have verified and I can confirm that the "Sync to CTA when Bookmarking" message is no longer displayed on the Firefox "ru" locale. Verified on Windows 10 x64, Mac 10.14.5 and Arch Linux using latest Firefox Nightly "ru" locale (69.0a1 - Build ID: 20190704094530).

Iteration: 69.4 - Jun 24 - Jul 7 → 70.1 - Jul 8 - 21

Fixed by bug 1548784 with a solution that works for any locale with longer strings.
