Reproduce: 1. Set your main Mailnews window (3 pane) to "normal" size 2. Open a msg with a long newsgroup header, e.g. <news://news.mozilla.org/398C2D7A.FD9DE98@uumail.de> Actual result: - The newsgroups are not wrapped. - The main window keeps the same size, but the content, in particular the msg pane and with it the thread pane and the toolbars, are widened. As a result, the right columns of the thread pane, the throbber and other UI is invisible. Expected result: - The newsgroups are wrapped - The main window and all of the panes and toolbars keep their size. Additional Information: I think, the problem is that the sizes of the msg and thread pane are not calculated correctly. There should be some manner in XUL to specify their sizes dependant of the size of the main window, *not* their content (as seems to be the case now). Just as precaution: The problem is *not* that all newsgroups are shown. All newsgroups *have* to be shown. And as they are currently displayed in an <html> widget, they should wrap, if the problem described above is solved.
can you attach a message which hasn't expired? Is this similar to 46411?
You can easily recreate a new one by posting a msg to 10 or so newsgroups. It is similar to bug 40036. I don't think, it is a dup, though, because I think, we should forcefully constrain the size of the panes. A bug like 40036 might appear again. Not sure, if this is still nsbeta3, though.
The newsgroup problem is fixed with the other bug. This propably still happens, if the subject is long and does not contain whitespace.
This also sounds like bug 46411

Summary: Long newsgroups header widens 3 pane → Long header widens 3 pane
Forgot to adjust summary.
Also appears in the View All Headers mode, because the "Recieved" header is so long that it doesn't fit in the msg pane. Interestingly, it doesn't wrap, although it contains spaces. Is that another bug?
(just correcting fields to coincide with + status)
Target Milestone: --- → M18
When I try to display a message that just has a long subject field without any spaces we can wrap, we just truncate the data at the end of the line. the 3pane isn't actually made wider. I think that's reasonable enough behavior for now. if the 3 pane was actually jumping and getting made wider than we still have a problem worthy of beta3.
> if the 3 pane was actually jumping and getting made wider than we still have a > problem worthy of beta3. The 3 pane never jumped around, and the size of the top-level window was always the same. But the msg pane, and it the thread pane, were widened. Did you still see the throbber in the upper-left corner?
second pass: - per mail triage
Whiteboard: [nsbeta3+] → [nsbeta3-][cut 8/29]
sorry for the extra email. Removing mail2 keyword.

This also looks related to bug 91662 (a dup?)

Fixed in bug 51616?
No, long to: and cc: addresses still cause this problem, and it's especially bad when the message has file attachments too. See bug 91662 for the full story. Btw how come all the cc:'s from 91662 didn't get copied back to this bug?
*** Bug 108884 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
I'm reversing the dup here since bug 91662 has test cases and analysis and is more useful. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 91662 ***
