Description Stephen Harbage 2007-12-02 11:04:57 PST
When viewing a message in Gmail that has a "To" list longer than a few e-mails, Safari makes the message wider and wider as there are recipients

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to Gmail>Compose
2. Type in a number of e-mails e.g:
ungle12344@jungle.co.au, something@notthing.whatever, nevermind@whatisgoingonatthisplace.co.uk, hello1235465456@ajggs.com, laksjglkasjg@gakgjas.com, akgslkgjlasg2@gagasga.com,
3. Send them
4. Open the sent message

Expected Results:
Safari should keep the e-mail a certain width

Actual Results:
But it widens it as long as there are e-mail addresses  (this gets REALLY bad when opening a message that is sent to 10s of people!) as of course all the text in an e-mail is also widened making it very hard to read if it has a few sentences!

It works fine in FF 2.x and Camino 1.5.x

This occurs in Safari 3 or nightly nightly 28314

I also added it here: <rdar://problem/5624997>

The workaround is to use the 'Older Version' by clicking on the top right hand corner of Gmail

Confirmed with WebKit nightly r28314, compared to Firefox

I don't understand, why has ReviewedForRadar been added if it is already in Radar?

Can't repro this on the latest version of Safari. Moving to resolved.
