Description Meno25 2007-02-16 23:04:25 UTC
Text overlaps with the sidebar in Arabic Wikipedia in the history, recent
changes and user contributions pages making these pages not readable. This bug
was noticed when using IE 6 or 7 or Firefox 1 or 2 but this ONLY happens when
using a LONG edit summary.
Comment 1 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2007-02-18 00:23:42 UTC
This is caused by a URL in a summary, which IE and Firefox can't break.  On low
resolutions, or if you shrink the window width, it can't break it and it has to
go somewhere.  For LTR, it appears that the page just stretches to the right,
with the text overflowing from the viewport, but in RTL it overflows
*backwards*.  I could swear that this is incorrect behavior from the UAs (it
should overflow to the left), but either way, not sure how to fix it.

Opera 9 behaves as expected, by overflowing to the left outside of the viewport.

Seems to have been fixed. FF 3.0 and IE 7 under Win XP
