Firefox 17.0a1 (2012-08-08)
Device: Galaxy Nexus
OS: Android 4.1.1

Steps to reproduce:
1. Change the OS language to Portuguese
2. Open Fennec
3. Go to
4. Tap on the blue lock from the right side of the URL Bar

Expected result:
The site-identity popup is triggered after step 4. There are no layout issues on it.

Actual result:
The last text line on the site identity popup is overlapped at step 4 (see attached screenshot)
This issue is reproducing for other languages like for Nederlands for example.
Whoa, that's a lot of overlap.

Ian, how do you think we should address this? The "Verified by: " value can be arbitrarily long, since it's provided by the cert. Should we just ellipsize it? Or marquee it?
Oh dear. That is... very bad, heh.

We might have to break those onto two lines. And then if they are still too long, ellipsize the text.

IMO, ellipsize is BAD. We want people to be able to read this info. It's security related. I think we need to use the marquee feature and keep this a single line.
I thought someone might say that. Fair enough. Marquee away.

Patch solves the issue.
We might need to revisit after defining the textAppearanceSmall and textAppearanceMedium later.

Thanks for working on a patch! This definitely looks better than before, but I'm seeing the word "Encrypted" wrap strangely when there's a really long verifier string. I'll post a screenshot. Also, it would be good for ibarlow to look at it, since he might have suggestions/demands ;)

Unfortunately, there's also a site_identity_popup.xml in layout-large-v11, but I just ran a diff and only one line is different between them, so maybe this is a good opportunity to combine them.

leibovic$ diff layout/site_identity_popup.xml layout-large-v11/site_identity_popup.xml 
<     <RelativeLayout android:layout_width="fill_parent"
>     <RelativeLayout android:layout_width="@dimen/site_identity_popup_width"

This screenshot doesn't look valid anymore.
