Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

$lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu 7.10
Release: 7.10

$ apt-cache policy firefox
  Installed: 3.0~b4+nobinonly-0ubuntu1
  Candidate: 3.0~b4+nobinonly-0ubuntu1
  Version table:
 *** 3.0~b4+nobinonly-0ubuntu1 0
        500 http://au.archive.ubuntu.com hardy/main Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

When entering file:///home/<homedir> into firefox, the browser displays
all files in that directory.

If a filename is very long (200+ char), firefox will word wrap the file
over two lines but also abbreviate the filename by inserting "..." in
the middle of the file name. If you hover over the file name, you will
get the full file name.

I expect to be able to disable the word wrapping abbreviation that
inserts the "..." without losing the word wrapping feature.
