In mailnews, when i click on a message that has a very long subject header, the
message display list changes. The header columns expands and the rightmost
columns can't be viewed anymore. This happens when the long subject header has
If the long message subject looks like this
this is a verry long long long ... long message
Note: the message subject is about 250+ chars long.
the display is ok but if the message looks like this..
this is a veryyy longggg...ngggggggggggggggggggggggg message..
Note: longggg is about 120+ chars.
The message list display changes, the columns expand and the rightmost columns
disappear as what would happen if you resize a window to a small one and the
scroll bars appear.. this time there are no scroll bars because the message list
display does not have one.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. compose a mail message
2. enter a long message subject with a word that is about 120+ chars long or
longer if the display size is big.
3. try to make the mailnews screen size small so it will be easier to reproduce.
4. send the mail to yourself.
5. retrieve the mail and select the new mail message
Actual Results: the screen flickers for a while (like when you click on another
folder) the columns expands and the rightmost columns disappear from sight.
Expected Results: no flickering and the column sizes shouldnt have changed.
