Attached image Bookmarks Panel

On smaller screen sizes, the bottom of the bookmarks panel isn't accessible when fully expanded.

This was an issue even before Proton, but is more apparent now with the more spacious design.

fwiw, the right solution here would be to fix bug 1464580. I understand we want a short term solution here and thus it may be fine, but a scrollbar here doesn't seem great as a final solution.

I also don't think this is critical, one can always close one of the 2 pickers, and using both at the same time is unlikely to be common (no numbers here though).

We've verified this issue on latest Nightly 90.0a1, under Win 10 x64, macOS 10.15 and Ubuntu 18.04 x64. The bug is not reproducing anymore, we simulated the smaller screens with pref layout.css.devPixelsPerPx.


Molly, is there a reason not to have an uplift request to beta since this is marked as [priority:2a]? Thanks

No, the only reason is that I forgot about it, I'll request that now. Thanks for the reminder!
