View > Toolbars > Customize..., and set the window very narrow. This causes the text under the icons to overlap messily. Perhaps the icons should wrap when the window is narrowed past their cumulative width? Perhaps. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. View > Toolbars > Customize...
2. Set the window very narrow

Actual Results:  
Overlapping sub-icon text.

Text overlap toolbar bug --screenshot

I think the system ate my comments, so let's try that part again..

I think this is probably the same bug:

I normally keep my browser window at 800x600.

Occasionally, and most often when I use "Open In New Window", there is some text overlap at the rightmost part of the toolbars. I will attach a screenshot. This particular instance reproduced twice from the same link, then was almost=normal on the 3rd attempt (self-corrected per below):

SOMETIMES this will correct itself -- in fact I can watch it happen as the process is not instantaneous. The initial display has the overlap, then maybe 1/4 second later, the redisplay is normal. So it seems to me like sometimes the toolbar display is getting caught in a partly-baked state.

However, if the window gets stuck in the overlap state, it will not self-correct. It will usually (not always) correct if I make the window fullscreen (here meaning 1024x768) then use the Prefbar button to resize back to 800x600. It never happens if a window starts at 1024x768, but there aren't enough items on the toolbars to generate the >> stack then, either.

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv: Gecko/20080313 SeaMonkey/1.1.9
Also had the same issue in Mozilla v1.8. I don't recall seeing it in Moz v1.5. I *think* it started after I added a couple more links to the "Personal Toolbar Folder" thus generating the >> stack at the right. But why this affects the Prefbar >> stack escapes me. I have not changed PrefBar versions, nor reinstalled it; in fact Moz 1.8 got it from Moz 1.5, and SM got it from Moz 1.8.

It's a trivial bug, really, but since I noticed it was already filed, thought I'd add my 2 cents in case it's useful. :)
