Description

7 years ago
Reproduction:
1. Enter "fdghgfh" as email address
2. click "Continue"

Actual result:
The text "Double check this email address!" is cut off by the button border.
Worse: the "Continue" button is also pushed outside the window.

This is worse in other languages, which are longer.

Expected result:
Text and buttons are in window

Possible solutions:
1) Make the dialog bigger
2) Make the error message wrap.
3) Move the error messages underneath each field
4) Move the error messages underneath all the fields.

Downsides:
1) That doesn't work for other, longer languages, it would be huge and mostly empty.
2) Text fields move. Still not a lot of space.
3) Text fields move. Much more space than in option 2. Harder to associate with corresponding field than option 2.
4) Association with fields is lost.

I'm OK with any of these apart from 1).
