Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 721155
details modal for errors should wrap exception text so it can easily be viewed and selected

Currently the text is not wrapped at all and scrolls off the right side of the modal. In order to see the cut-off text, the user must either scroll to the right or resize the modal and make it wider. However, sometimes even when the modal is made as wide as the whole browser window, some text is still cut-off... To actually select the text, scrolling doesn't even work (this may just be a limitation of modals in FF); the only thing that works is resizing the modal, but that doesn't always even work as previously mentioned.
Figuring out the best solution here will require some thought and ideally some input from UXD. Wrapping the text may be good, but that would still require a lot of vertical scrolling for big exceptions and still have the same issues around selecting all of the text. I think we may need to add a "Select All" button on the modal that automatically selects all the text in the modal and possibly even copies it to the user's clipboard if that's possible.
