Description

The installer is currently so narrow, that the whole path is currently not
visible - this is annoying. 

The window with should be at least wide enough to show the full default path
plus  50% in case a user chooses a longer directory tree. 

Better would be to also show the full path as tooltip when hovered over, or to
wrap the tree onto multiple lines.

It probably depends on your screen resolution and font size (large/small).

Also, I install Mozilla to: C:\Program Files\Communication\Mozilla which is a
bit longer.

This bug would nicely take care of all screen resolition/fontsize and user
defined path problems.

It is very usettling to not be able to visually confirm that the path is correct
before starting an installation onto ones harddrive.

I can't see how this is supposed to be a major loss of functionality? If you
really need to know where in your tree it will install, click the "Browse..."
button.
