Created attachment 774899 [details] [diff] [review] patch updated to ensure Favorite folder tip takes precedence over crop state.
Comment on attachment 774899 [details] [diff] [review] patch Okay, I think I'm basically happy with this patch. It would be nice to have some tests for it so that we don't regress it again, though. r=me, ui-r=me. Thanks, Blake.

Verified in today's trunk that tooltips on mail folders with ellipsis show with the full folder name.
