A similar issue with Dutch language, a title and time are trancated
See the screenshot attachment for Dutch
We’re having this isssue with a lot of latin locales, too. Requesting some UX love on this one: how gracefully could we degrade to a multi-line display?

A multiline degradation would solve situations like bug 875938, too.

Czech and Dutch doesn't seems to be the target markets. Even if it's annoying we wouldn't block on this.

Blocking as Czech and Dutch are target markets.

Assigning to Francis to advise on graceful truncation, which is a theme we see cropping up quite a bit these days. May also be a candidate for Esther.

Passing this on to the visual design team to determine the new layout. FWIW, my recommendation would be to allow enough room for the time stamp to be shown in full and to truncate the 1st line of the notification, rather than adding more lines. It seems also that we could perhaps reduce some padding on the right hand margin, or reduce the space required by the icon. What do you think Peter?
Getting off the leo+ list until this is happened : https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=892075#c4
blocking-b2g: leo+ → ---

Hi Francis/Stephanie,

It's difficult to advise without knowing the full set of strings that could appear for the time stamp.  Can this be provided by someone?

I'm also going to loop in Eric, who has been working on exactly this issue already for other languages.

This came up in bug 893141 as well.  Matej brought up a good point asking if it's even needed.  

If "ago" is removed would the string fit (Ago isn't necessary since it should be known to the user)? Or would it make sense to just display the time the action occurred (as a time stamp)?
