Screen shot of massive whitespace issues. (150.23 KB, image/png)
2011-04-01 23:56 UTC, OverlordQ

Description OverlordQ 2011-04-01 23:52:10 UTC
Everything else makes nice use of the window, whereas on individual bugs the comments section is smashed all into the left 1/3 of the page.
Comment 1 OverlordQ 2011-04-01 23:56:34 UTC
Created attachment 8364 [details]
Screen shot of massive whitespace issues.
Comment 2 Sam Reed (reedy) 2011-04-02 00:33:50 UTC
Which skin is that?

Might want to change to "wikimedia"
Comment 3 p858snake 2011-04-02 00:36:19 UTC
Same can been seen in the default/wikimedia skin
Comment 4 OverlordQ 2011-04-02 07:31:10 UTC
It is/was dusk. It's whatever got assigned to me for some reason after the upgrade.
Comment 5 Mark A. Hershberger 2011-04-06 23:36:41 UTC
Changing .bz_comment_text from "width: 50em" to, say, "width: 75em" changes the amount of whitespace surrounding the comment, but the comment text is inside a <pre> so line breaks are respected and so text doesn't flow to fill the additional area.  Looks like you'd have to use something besides <pre> to make the whitespace go away.  Especially since (on Chrome) "width: 100%" looks about the same as "width: 50em".
Comment 6 Bawolff (Brian Wolff) 2011-04-08 17:06:45 UTC
The following css:

.bz_comment_table {width:100%;}
pre.bz_comment_text {width:auto;white-space:normal}

Would fix it. However it would also mess up anything relying on spaces to visually format stuff, since it'd cause normal html white-space collapsing behaviour.

It might be worth doing just:

.bz_comment_table {width:100%;}
pre.bz_comment_text {width:auto;}

Since even though the lines wouldn't use the entire box (From the line breaks in a pre), it does look nicer for the eye if the box spans the entire space.
Comment 7 Bawolff (Brian Wolff) 2011-04-08 17:08:44 UTC
Actually never mind, I forgot that that would also cause multiparagraph comments to collapse into one block of text, so messing with the white-space is probably a bad idea. Second part of my comment still stands.
Comment 8 Priyanka Dhanda 2011-06-22 21:10:02 UTC
Bugmeister is the new Bugzilla maintainer and default assignee.
Comment 9 Thehelpfulone 2012-06-22 19:21:37 UTC

> Reset assignee per bug 37789

Did you ask mark before mass resetting all his bugs? My understanding is that even though he's "departed" he still hangs around, so it may not be appropriate to mass unassign all his bugs (Unless of course he is ok with the mass unassignment or I am mistaken in what his current level of involvement is as a 'volunteer')
Comment 11 Andre Klapper 2012-10-11 10:46:41 UTC
Upstreamed as
Comment 12 Andre Klapper 2012-10-11 11:09:46 UTC
Upstream marked as dup of which is a WONTFIX.
