Description

6 years ago
When viewing the "about:addons" page using Windows 8.1, some of the text including the link will be cut off. In Windows 8, the page is auto corrected but not in Windows 8.1. 

- Attached two screenshots to illustrate the issue

Steps to reproduce the issue: (need a Windows 8.1 machine)

1) Open Firefox Metro
2) Go into the "about:addons" page and start shrinking the Firefox Metro view, you should notice that the text will start to cut off.

Current Behaviour:

- Some of the text in the "about:addons" screen is being cut off under Windows 8.1

Expected Behaviour:

- Should be the same as Windows 8, where the screen is auto corrected once the user switches views

Couldn't find a Story to block this issue and update the whiteboard, if someone knows a good story relating to this please block this.

Used the following build:

Hey Kamil do you want to take this bug?
I think you'd need to search on dxr for the message on the page to see the localiation string id. Then search dxr for that ID to find the xhtml page, then modify the CSS of that page to fix it.

If you can get it to work with 1 CSS rule then that might be best, but if not you can result to CSS media queries.

This is another release28 blocker so would be awesome to have done.

May be the same underlying issue as bug 926036, which is in my queue for this iteration so lets compare notes?
