Creating New Directory with long long Name will expand the dropdown list in the Pref window and even cut out Edit Directories button button. Except Linux,Wins and Mac have this problem.
It does not happen on my windows machine if I am using classic skin. Yulian can you check if that is the case on all platforms.

This happens with the dropdown listboxes in mail/news Account Settings-> copies and folders pane. This happens only with modern skin. I think this is a duplicate of bug 67597. Yulian can you verify that it is the case?

True with Windows build. But the problem still happens on Mac no matter with modern or Classic skin.
This happens with modern skin on all platforms. But on Mac it happens with classic skin too. I see this problem with the drp down listbox in Mail/News Account Settings -> copies and folders if you have really long account name.
Summary: long Name forces Edit Directories button out → drop down listbox changes size based on selection

seems like this is an xptoolkit issue. the skin cannot control this behavior.

this happens in both themes - the menulist isn't properly sizing itself to the width of the menupopup, which sounds like an xptoolkit bug

Please review http://www.mozilla.org/quality/bug-writing-guidelines.html As it stands, this bug report is not usable. Please give clear steps to reproduce. Unsetting milestone for owner's review. And removing the spurious blocker (how a bug that never mentions LDAP, can somehow block LDAP is beyond me).

Back to Addressing preferences window 14. In LDAP Directory Server drop down listbox, choose the long Directory Name created form Step 10 15. You see the long name pulls the border of "Address Autocompletion" ,"Email Address Collection" beyond the Preferences window size and forces the "Edit Directories" button out of the widnow With Modern Theme, this problem happens on all platforms: Windows, Linux and Mac. With Classic Theme, this problem happens on Macs only.

Thanks for the clear steps. Now it is clear to all: it happens in Mac Classic and in Modern, but not with Win Classic or with no skin applied, so it is the skin which is the determining factor. In Win Classic (or "naked"), this text does get cropped. Perhaps that needs to be defined, if it isn't for the other bindings that are used. -> hewitt
