white-space: pre in Firefox messes up the issues view a little


Reproduce: View any issue in firefox.

As you can see, the long lines in issues and comments break out from the bounding area of the left_column div.

I would suggest using white-space: pre-wrap, as it also preserves the whitespaces, but it would break lines too long.

The backside is that IE6 and older browsers will probably not preserve white-spaces this way.

In the end I wanted to write a long line, so anyone watching this issue in firefox could see what I have meant by lines not breaking. This text supposed to extend through the "right sidebar" in firefox. Since the design is not responsive this should be enough.

This was fixed in a previous deployment.
