Everytime there's an update for Firefox, after I accept installing it, it displays a box with a progress bar and with a text showing "Firefox está instalando sus actualizaciones y se iniciará en unos instantes..." (Firefox is installing the update and it will restart in a few instants...", but the last word appears truncated by the progress bar (see picture at the URL). It was happening even before version 2.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Wait the day of a new update, and Firefox will notify it's ready to install it.
2. Accept installing the update.
3. Watch the progress bar.
Actual Results:  
Same problem arise every new update.

Expected Results:  
The dialog box must be a bit longer or wider in order to show properly the text inside it.

Probably the problem appears only in foreign-language versions, since these languages tend to use longer words than English, and at the moment of translating the software, programmers didn't calculate new dimensions for the dialog box in order to the translated text fits in the box. (I don't know if this bug appears or not in others languages of Firefox)
based on the that screen shot, this looks like it would be fixed by bug #336528
