[Mac] Updater window does not resize to fit text label on localized builds
I noticed this problem with Italian (it) builds on Mac OS X (both Leopard and Snow Leopard): the string InfoText (from updater.ini) is longer than the original en-US string and the label is cropped. On Windows the text is fully displayed, even if the string seems to stop just before the edge (so I don't know if it's a problem with a longer label), while I still have to try on Linux. I assume (but I didn't verify) this happens also with other Mozilla products (Thunderbird for example) and involves other locales (looking at l10n-mozilla1.9.2, there are localized strings longer than the Italian one).

The full label is shown in the updater

dolske, since you have a Mac could you take a look at this?
Hmm, I don't see anything setting sizes of the OS X dialog, so I'd assume it defaults to stretch-to-fit. But it's all ObjC/Cocoa code, which I don't really know. CCing a couple OS X folks who would know better than I... [code in question is toolkit/mozapps/update/src/updater/progressui_osx.mm].
The size is set in the nib file, it is not stretch-to-fit. toolkit/mozapps/update/src/updater/macbuild/Contents/Resources/English.lproj/MainMenu.nib Right now that size is set to 504, you can see this by opening the nib file in Interface Builder, selecting the Window instance, and looking at the content frame width in the Inspector window.
We could fix this by measuring the size of the string as we'd want it drawn and adjusting UI elements appropriately in progressui_osx.mm.
The same for Namoroka and Thunderbird for es-ES locale
Any news on this? Unfortunately the problem is still there (Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; it; rv:2.0b2pre) Gecko/20100716 Minefield/4.0b2pre) and it became easier to spot with localized nightly builds
Someone familiar with Mac programming will need to implement what Josh suggested in comment #7
Josh, this fixes this bug for me but I'm to say the least not familiar with Interface Builder or Cocoa. Thanks.

Same patch except I used the Interface Builder from xcode 2.5 for this one to lessen the churn in the nib
