Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; 0.8.1), 2001-04-11 Change Tooltips to Title Tips in Folder Pane when Title tips become available. Tooltips are nice, but the "inline" Tilte Tips are much better :)
please mark this dependent on the bug about implementing titletips
Putting nsbeta1- (because mail6 shows up in my queries and this will make it stop). I agree that it would look much better and wish that I could have done this originally.
marking 0.9.1 because only partially readable folders are in the users face every day and are a major factor in user satisfaction and subjective impression of the apps quality.
Scott this bug is listed in the PRD for 3-pane improvements, I'm going to nominate this per that criteria. Should you change the milestone so this doesn't get lost OR is there another bug covering this. Note: the PRD lists this bug as done up in the Feature section. Comment!
If title tips get implemented we'll have to reconsider this.
does the folder pane even have tooltips anymore I don't see them. jag's patch for bug #32157 will restore tooltips.
To answer Seth's comment 7: I am seeing tool tips on the folder pane in 1.5 Final and 1.6b-1208, Win2000.
The Tooltips are still there. At least in Mozilla Application Suite 1.7.12 on Windows NT (and most likely on other platforms too). Remember, they only show up when the folder name doesn't fit in the width of the Folder Pane.
