1. RightClick on one of subscribed folders, select  New Subfolder. 
2. New dialog appears titled New Folder in which buttons OK and Cancel 
 are not visible.

I'll attach screenshot

Worksforme using a 02/12 build. This may be a theme problem, or something that
has to do with your big font.

Reporter, is this also happening in Classic for you?  Cc'ing hewitt.

To get rid of window.sizeToContent() , we had to use fixed sizes as 
shown in the patch submitted by Here is what the problem will 
be with fixed size window, when font size changes.

From the last patch in bug #52564. This bug cannot be fixed until 
window.sizeToContent works on all platforms

adding window.sizeToContent() bug as a blocker.

Can we do heights in units other than px? If we can size in em, that would be
very nice....

os->all -- happens to anyone with a high-res screen.

Navi, The dialog looks even worse with Classic theme (see screenshot in bug 72662 ).
Can't see what the buttons are, and wether they are buttons at all or something

can you just make it a bit bigger in newFolderDialog.xul?

- width="200" height="180"
+ width="260" height="210"

those sizes should make buttons visible on high resolution screens.

the above fix does it for me
dialog appears just right on Win2K in high res

I'm not sure how it will affect IMAP stuff in bug 52564

No, this is not the correct fix. I will investigate if sizeToContent() is working 
now ?

I understand you would like to use sizeToContent() for this dialog and probably
for many other dialogs as well.
I didn't find any reference to sizeToContent() in newFolderDialog.js, yet when
you don't explicitly specify window size in newFolderDialog.xul the window sizes
itself properly under Win2K.
If sizeToContent() is called for it frome some other place I can understand your
concern about it crashing Linux machines.
Or maybe other OSes don't handle this the same way Windows does and this fix
doesn't work for them.

In either way, the issue of sizing of this dialog has been addressed in bug
52564, and as I understand a temp fix has been placed by setting a fixed window
size. That size however is too small for high res screens, and buttons are not
visible, especially under Classic theme.

If the above fix doesn't work for anything else apart from Windows, it would be
good to adjust the fixed size to make everyone happy until sizeToContent() is fixed.

attaching new small fix.

Removing <width="200" height="180"> seems to fix this bug. Isn't this correct?
