I don't know about you're resolution, but on my normal window size of the browser (around 1000x500 on a display of 1280x1024) Creedence Clearwater Revival does NOT get cut off.  Of course this is even more not the case when the window is maximized.

Do you have your browser with lower resolution/size ?

P.S. I just tried to resize my browser's window to as little as 300x200 ... and this band's name was still intact ! (in this worst case is was split on 2 rows, but still not cut off as in your picture).

P.S.2 I was trying this with Firefox 44.0.2, on my Linux box on a desktop computer.

No, I'm running 1920x1080 on Firefox 44.0.2.

I've never actually noticed this. I guess I don't listen to many bands with long names. It doesn't seem to be an issue with the album name though, which is surprising!

You're right, it's not an issue with album names. My god, that would be even more annoying. Even extremely long titles like The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars is fully displayed.

Here's another problem with the album chart, in two parts:
1 - with some albums the artist's name isn't displayed at all; in the screenshot this should be SAHA
2 - when you click the buy-link on such an album, an iframe is loaded, which contains a USER page, specifically www.last.fm/user/None

Maybe this bug could be fixed at the same time.

Sorry, @Hornswwop, I misunderstood your first post (partly because I don't had the default setting for top artists/albums/tracks as images, but I had them as simple list).

Now I realize that in the situation you illustrated first, I have the exact thing myself.
With something extra :-)

I'm trying to bring some more details, maybe now the devs have more clues:

when my browser is full-screen, an album of the same band (Creedence Clearwater Revival) is also cut short:



The same when I make my browser window very small (as in 370x21 pixels):




But..... when I tried an intermediate resolution of the browser's window (737x520), surprisingly the images for the albums got resized as below:


Pretty strange, isn't it ?
It didn't quit make sense to have that enlarged format when browser gets middle sized window, but cutting of the band name when browser is full screen.

So any hint from the staff ?

The column is old; did you try to review the same page in Google Chrome? Firefox sometimes can be a bigot and sometimes he tends to zoom in the page even when the zoom button is restored to default.
