"Say hi to your new mentor!" message partially truncated
Open, MediumPublicBUG REPORT


List of steps to reproduce (step by step, including full links if applicable):

  • Receive a notification that someone is your new mentor (I don’t know what the mentor has to do to make this happen)
  • Open the notification

What happens?:
The text visually cuts off in a mildly funny position: “Say hi to your new men”. (This might depend on installed fonts etc.)

What should have happened instead?:
The text should display completely: “Say hi to your new mentor!” (copied from dev tools)

Software version (if not a Wikimedia wiki), browser information, screenshots, other information, etc:
1.37.0-wmf.23 (c90ba33) on; Mozilla Firefox Developer Edition 93.0b4

This seems to be due to the following CSS rule:

.mw-echo-ui-notificationItemWidget-content-actions > .mw-echo-ui-notificationItemWidget-content-actions-buttons.oo-ui-buttonSelectWidget > .oo-ui-buttonOptionWidget {
    min-width: 7em;
    max-width: 14em;
    overflow: hidden;

If I disable the max-width in dev tools, the full text appears.

User facing issue related to Growth feature under development, so I assume we want to fix this sooner rather than later.

That's interesting. I'm unable to reproduce (screenshot is from testwiki):

I'm also unable to reproduce when I make my browser window smaller.

@LucasWerkmeister To trigger the notification, you need to use to claim someone to be your mentee. In this case, I needed some users with edits on testwiki from today, and your account met that criteria :-).

Firefox says the chosen font-family is DejaVu Sans, if that helps.

Funnily enough, when I log in a Firefox browser, the text does get cut off, albeit on a slightly different place:

Tagging with Browser-Support-Firefox, as it appears to be FF-related.

Switching between legacy/modern vector does not change anything, but switching to or does.

@kostajh I think this is a bug in Notifications rather than in GrowthExperiments-Mentorship, as it works as expected in some environments. For that reason, I'll be unable to help here I'm afraid.
