Description Dave Jones 2011-09-01 16:35:46 UTC
Using https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=726931 as an example, on a 19" monitor, the comment box occupies less than 50% of the width of the screen, with the rest just being whitespace. For stack backtraces, this leads to a really hard to read mess.

I think this might be due to the 'groups' tickboxes in the right hand side pushing into the comment div.
Could that be moved somewhere else ? Given how rare it is to change those tickboxes, perhaps it might even make sense to hide them behind a 'change groups' button ?

It's not the group thing. Simply adding width="100%" to the bz_comment_table table seems to address the problem (about 190 pixels are used for the expand and collapse options). Looks fine on my 14" laptop. Will need to check on a larger screen though.

I've played around with this and it looks fine on my 24" monitor as well.

Verify version:4.2.4-7 on test server -> PASS

Verify steps:
1. Login bugzilla on a computer which have monitor larger than 19" .
2. Go to one bug's detail page which have width comment, like bug 726931.
3. Check the width of comment.

Actual result:
It looks well, the comment takes most of the space.
