Long edit summary overlaps with sidebar for RTL
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Text overlaps with the sidebar in Arabic Wikipedia in the history, recent
changes and user contributions pages making these pages not readable. This bug
was noticed when using IE 6 or 7 or Firefox 1 or 2 but this ONLY happens when
using a LONG edit summary.

This is caused by a URL in a summary, which IE and Firefox can't break. On low
resolutions, or if you shrink the window width, it can't break it and it has to
go somewhere. For LTR, it appears that the page just stretches to the right,
with the text overflowing from the viewport, but in RTL it overflows
*backwards*. I could swear that this is incorrect behavior from the UAs (it
should overflow to the left), but either way, not sure how to fix it.

Opera 9 behaves as expected, by overflowing to the left outside of the viewport.
