The name and value label fields now only allow a maximum of 63 characters. Thus this is no longer an issue. Please verify. thanks

The issue still exists on Firefox 44 and IE11/Edge25 on win10, when add long environment variables, and when edit an added label value to a long value. Pls refer to attachment env.png and label.png

Adding some info to this issue...
Firefox's default tooltip behavior doesn't wrap non-breaking strings of text.
There is no way to do so through css only.
The user can get the entire value by enabling editing on that value.
Screen readers can access the entire string.
In light of these factors we will hold off on making changes currently. And may, in the future, look at alternatives such as implementing a show all link for the full value.
This bug was accidentally moved from POST to MODIFIED via an error in automation, please see firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions
Checked on origin again, now there is no tooltip shown up when the env value is very long, no matter on creation page or on dc/bc environment page. Is the tooltip feature changed ?
Yes the tooltip is no longer needed, in the new implementation of the environment variable editing/viewing you always have access to the full message in the input. In the old version when in "view" mode on that form you had no way to see the full text.
According to comment 10 and 11, this is no longer an issue now, so move the bug to Verified.
