User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.0.7) Gecko/2009021910 Firefox/3.0.7 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)

There's no longer a tooltip in the folder pane when a mailbox name is too wide (e.g. when MyMailboxName is displayed as MyMailboxN...).  This used to work in TB 2.x.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Hold mouse over a cut-off mailbox name that ends with an ellipsis.

Actual Results:  
No tooltip

Expected Results:  
Tooltip with the complete mailbox name.

This might also be a problem with folder/subfolder names, not just mailboxes.

1. If name is cropped, or abbreviated newsgroup, show the tooltip.
2. New messages summary popup takes precedence over 1.

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.
