Description (last modified by SergeyBiryukov)

Two years ago the admin menu was increased by width by 10 pixels, #25918. More and more strings gets translated, which causes the menu to be too small:

I would suggest to make the menu variable in width, so it can take the space needed for translated menu items.

  • Focuses accessibility added; administration removed
  • Version changed from trunk to 4.4

I'd totally second this. Had also some informal conversation about this and apparently there's no reason (or no more reason) why the menu should be just 160px wide. Also, the proposed changes in #28599 would benefit from such a change. cc @johnbillion
