Welcome dialog in VE has scrollbar in Firefox
Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Story Points


Reproducible in Firefox, but not in Vivaldi:

Just after the showing animation is finished, the dialog is still big enough to show without scrollbar, but then for some reason decreases its height just by one line.
Don't know whether this is caused by a change in VE or in OOjs UI, but this scrollbar wasn't there some time ago.

Is this on a Linux device?


I think it's just that the combination of German and Firefox+Linux default font makes it wrap to three lines.
