When the browser window is relatively narrow (mine is typically 800px wide) the domain name pane in Data Manager is very narrow and cannot be resized. Note that I also use larger than average font sizes in the UI, which don't help it looked so squished as to be less usable than it could be. When putting the cursor over the pane edge it turns to double-arrow indicating it can be resized, but it only allows making the data pane even larger. Is there a "min-width" setting in the data pane that prevents resizing the domain pane?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make a narrow browser window, i.e. 800px
2. Open Data Manager
3. Try making the domain pane wider
Actual Results:  
Domain pane can only be made even narrower, not wider.

Expected Results:  
Domain pane can be made wider.

The data pane never gets narrower than the width of the text down at the bottom of the Cookies tab, next to the Remove button. Line wrapping or truncation not allowed?

Ok, I see what you mean now. Yeah your larger fonts seem to be excavating the underling issue. However as I don't increase the dpi setting of the fonts I can get the window's width down pretty far before it becomes an issue. Down to about 615px in fact.

Which is well with-in the minimum resolution Windows or any other operating system will allow you to go by default. (NOTE: XP caps at 800x600 not 640x480).

Most programs never account for higher font dpi settings so I personalty would throw this in the category of minor ui enhancement, but practically it is likely to be a wontfix. But I cannot speak for those who actually write the code.
Fix is to set flex="1" on id="cookieBlockOnRemove" (and possibly other
checkboxes as well)
Ever confirmed: true
I have no plans on working on that right now, but patches are surely welcome.

This fixes the immediate problem. The next point at which the right pane can't be shrunk beyond is the minimum width of the tabbox containing the four tabs.But that's for another bug to fix.
