Heuristics: Usability

I entered 1024 characters and entered in Search text field and clicked on "Search". After it got processed there were no results but, the search text which was entered without no space crossed the visual boundary and it wasn't handled with new line when reached the layout boundary.

Test Data: *3*5*7*9*12*15*18*21*24*27*30*33*36*39*42*45*48*51*54*57*60*63*66*69*72*75*78*81*84*87*90*93*96*99*103*107*111*115*119*123*127*131*135*139*143*147*151*155*159*163*167*171*175*179*183*187*191*195*199*203*207*211*215*219*223*227*231*235*239*243*247*251*255*259*263*267*271*275*279*283*287*291*295*299*303*307*311*315*319*323*327*331*335*339*343*347*351*355*359*363*367*371*375*379*383*387*391*395*399*403*407*411*415*419*423*427*431*435*439*443*447*451*455*459*463*467*471*475*479*483*487*491*495*499*503*507*511*515*519*523*527*531*535*539*543*547*551*555*559*563*567*571*575*579*583*587*591*595*599*603*607*611*615*619*623*627*631*635*639*643*647*651*655*659*663*667*671*675*679*683*687*691*695*699*703*707*711*715*719*723*727*731*735*739*743*747*751*755*759*763*767*771*775*779*783*787*791*795*799*803*807*811*815*819*823*827*831*835*839*843*847*851*855*859*863*867*871*875*879*883*887*891*895*899*903*907*911*915*919*923*927*931*935*939*943*947*951*955*959*963*967*971*975*979*983*987*991*995*999*1004*1009*1014*1019*1024*

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Visit http://quality.mozilla.org/
2.Enter the test data given in "Details" text area.
Actual Results:  
Currently, the text which is lengthy [ In my case 1024 characters without space ] after getting processed crosses the visual boundary disturbing the layout. And the end-user have to use horizontal scroll-bar to see the text that has crossed visual boundary.

Expected Results:  
The search text should be handled properly with the new line or the text has to be truncated in order to avoid the text from crossing visual boundary.
Confirming; this is trivial (as filed), because this is a contiguous string.  I'll let dev/project figure out whether it's something we care to fix, in the future.
