ULS width should remain fixed while searching
Closed, ResolvedPublic



Currently the width of the ULS is based on how many items are inside of it. Because of this the width can change while you're searching for a language:

It seems like this was always the case, however previously the ULS was left-anchored so the resize was less noticeable/disruptive:


I think it would make sense for the width of the ULS to remain fixed while someone is searching.

Looks good to me. @Pginer-WMF - maybe this is something to consider for the new ULS? Do you have a rough idea on how long a short-term fix would take for the current version?

Makes sense to me. The idea of adjusting the size was intended to adapt for the initial state. I agree it is preferred not to reduce the size as the user searches to avoid distractions.

This is something we are considering for the new language selector (T253303). The demo @santhosh created already behaves that way, but I'll make sure to add an explicit note to clarify this.

Looks like this was fixed at some point
