Description of problem:
On my system (sawfish, gnome, Gnome Desk Guide (Pager) 2x2) it is not
possible to access all bookmarks in the bookmarks menu as the menu is too long,
to fit on my current screen and it doesn4t wrap.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Use Gnome and sawfish, configure a 2x2 paged window view (right click on task
bar an then choose panel -> add to panel -> Applet -> Utility -> Desk Guide),
then right click this applet an configure it.
2. start galeon
3. add a very long bookmarks list
4. try to select a bookmark via the Bookmarks main menu
Actual Results: The bookmarks menu does not wrap at the end of the screen and
therefore bookmarks which are at the end of the menu cannot be seen and are not
Expected Results: The bookmark menu should fit in the current screen and wrap
automatically if needed.
This bug was present in all galeon and mozilla version I tried up till
now. Using sub-folders or using the edit bookmarks menu is a workaround.
I wonder how this can work for you, as I found in section "Known Bugs an
Limitations" of the galeon manual, that "Bookmarks list not fully
displayed" (which I assume is my error) is a GTK shortcoming. Anyway
there seems to be no real solution and I agree the bug can be left
closed, also I doubt it really works for you ... ;)
