Description

messages on the connect site are truncated at the right of the message box display, instead of wrapping, making them impossible to read. (in Google Chrome) This is especially frustrating because there are huge white margins on either side of the message box.

Please allow message text to wrap when it is wider than the current message box width in the browser.

The issue appears to be fixed (perhaps status should be changed to reflect that?)

Actually, the text does wrap but not soon enough. The case is simply that the inner DIV containing the text is wider (972px) than the DIV that borders the list (min width around 771px). I have looked into the css code that causes this issue, see my report here:

The issue occurs in all browsers that I tried, including Internet Explorer 10 (both native and compatibility mode).

This is extremely annoying. In order to read comments I have to copy them into another editor so that I can see the entire text, instead of missing the last 2-4 words on every line.

Please fix this. How could you completely redesign a web site and only test it in Internet Explorer? Didn't we abandon that whole "works in my browser" mentality in the 90s, along with VBScript, ActiveX and all the other technologies that only worked in IE?

I can testify. The issue also occurs in Firefox 21.0. My browser window is some 700 pixels wide.
