Description Michael Zajac 2005-10-02 22:28:51 UTC
Bugzilla hard-wraps text that I enter into bug reports and comments to about 113 characters.  Then the display boxes on the page 
re-flow the text again, wrapping it at about 83 characters when my browser window is at its widest on a 1024-pixel wide display.

The text is hard to read, and Bugzilla makes me look like a dweeb who doesn't know how to use a text editor.

To fix this, just drop the hard-wrapping, and I can adjust my browser window to change the width of the text column.
