What version are you running?

2.0 RC2

What's the URL of the page containing the problem?


What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Create code with a really long comment line. Like, really long.
2. Create a review which involves that line, such as deleting or moving it.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

I expect the really long line will be wrapped. Or worst case, a horizontal scrollbar.

Instead, the box for the updated file is unreadably small *and* has data cut off. See screen-shot. There is no scroll bar.

What operating system are you using? What browser?

Reproduced on Mac OS X Chrome and Ubuntu Firefox.

Please provide any additional information below.

In my installation I added a solution by adding a CSS attribute:

.sidebyside pre {
   max-width: 50vw;

This makes each side of the review be no more than 50% of the browser window, which prevents this problem. You may solve it that way or maybe have another way that you would prefer to solve it.
