Marking as bug because this was available in 4.x.  Look at any message's
subject, sender, etc that has been shortened with ... Place cursor over the part
that has been shortened.  In the 4.x, a little clarification dialog would popup
and show the full message/sender/etc (Like how placing the cursor over a folder
shows the number of messages).  I would really appreciate having this ability
back.  Thanks!

I know this was discussed before in another bug but I can't find it. Setting
status to "New" in the meantime. Scott, can we get title tips working as in 4.x?
Ever confirmed: true

this is an important bug since reading message headers is a vital pert of
managing ones emails. It is also "low cost - high return".

Could someone please nominate it for a mozilla0.8 milestone target or keyword?

Suggest to change summary to:

"Need Tooltips for Long Subjects in Message Headers"

This will make it more clear what this bug is supposed to fix. Currently, the
summary is more like a long-winded description than a summary. All of Bugzilla's
interfaces are not made to handle such long summaries. Users cannot understand
what this bug is about.

Also, I am surprized that this bug hasn't been fixed yet. Tooltips functionality
is part of the Win OS and should be VERY easy to implement. Brian, could you
please put mozilla0.8 in the keywords field?

Nominating & changing summary.  Thanks for the help and suggestions! :)
Keywords: mozilla0.8
Summary: When placing cursor over shortened subject/sender of message (in folder view) no clarification of rest of subject/sender → Need Tooltips for Long Subjects in Message Headers

This currently isn't planned for mozilla0.8.  I've changed the nomination to
mozilla0.9 so it gets properly triaged for the next milestone.
Keywords: mozilla0.8 → mozilla0.9

Nominating mozilla1.0.1 to offload bugs off of mozilla1.0

This is something that should definetely be in Mozilla1.0, latest. Please
reconsider milestone. 

Actually, titletips and tooltips should be in Mozilla 1.0 for all parts of the
app. This is basic functionality for an application. Suggest keywords: nsCatFood

Actually, it is *Titletips* that we need, since they are "inline" (tooltips are
"below" the curser). Therefore, I suggest to change the summary to:

"Need Titletips (or tooltips) for Cropped Text in Message Header Pane"

Also, Seth, shouldn't this bug have a *higher priority* and a *target milestone*
by now?!

It should also be upgraded to all platforms, as it's a problem on Solaris, too

It's been reported multiple times, over 18 MONTHS, and still no resolution?

This bug is still marked NEW. It hasn't been resolved because it hasn't been 
fixed, but it isn't assigned to anyone yet. 

Seth: do you want help finding someone to take this?

Shouldn't this be a dup of bug 32157?

I'd say it's a dupe, yes.  Once bug 32157 is fixed properly, all trees will have
