User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv: 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.

updated to ensure Favorite folder tip takes precedence over crop state.

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.

for checkin

(updated with 1 check to also fix current false popup on search folders with no new items.)

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