In Chrome 63 on Chromebook and on Windows 10, and in MS Edge (Windows 10), but NOT in Firefox (Windows 10).

See this screenshot, and notice the URL does not wrap, it continues under the Phantom Thread ad box to the right and over the ad wallpaper (blue text on actress' face).


This is not specific to this ad. I also happens when Ad Blocker is ON.
List URL is http://www.imdb.com/list/ls021062047/

@bderoes,

This problem is not limited to URLs. The updated list software does not handle any long text strings well. Here is an example:

Col,

Thanks. The two test cases wrap the text properly.

This problem is happening on Checkins and Watchlist now.
Dan's test case above still works fine, but a long string in the description of a title in the Checkins list or the Watchlist does not. Here it is in Edit mode:

And here it is in View mode:

I'm not sure I should report this on this "solved" thread. If I don't get a response in a couple of days, I hope to remember to re-report this on a new thread.
