      Description

      When viewing a page that displays a "Date" column, if a row is too long to fit on a single line, the "Date" column wraps inconsistently in different browsers. In general, the Date does not wrap in Firefox or Opera, but does wrap in Chrome, Safari, and IE.

      The expected behavior is that consistent wrapping occurs across browsers. In my opinion, the desired behavior is for the date to not wrap in any browser, as the resulting display is aesthetically more pleasing. Since dates are never more than 10 characters, this should not cause any messed-up formatting in other columns.

      Example page: https://musicbrainz.org/release-group/38b4c840-16ce-40fa-b7c0-a354b7c87178
      This page is particularly impacted by the very long disambiguation of "Columbia". Viewing this page in different browsers will demonstrate the issue.
