Hmm, then perhaps I should have spoken to you the last time I volunteered to fix a bug (never got a response that time). At any rate, I'll put my money where my mouth is:

I find bug 45375 particularly annoying (as do many others, apparently), and I would like to fix it myself. I'm a reasonably experienced C/C++ coder with almost no experience with the Mozilla codebase. If you could tell me the file(s) and line(s) of the code that will need to be modified to make tooltips display without being cropped, I'll get right on fixing it.
