    I have dropdownlists in a kendo grid. In IE and Chrome, it all works without issue. In Firefox, the dropdownlist will change to three dots if I shrink the browser width enough. What is the reason for this and how can I have Firefox behave like IE/Chrome where it doesn't change from the dropdownlist to the 3 dots?

    See attached of example of what I mean.

    Hello Ed,

    This behavior is by design and is due to the following CSS rule which is applied to the <span> with k-input class: 

    .k-dropdown .k-input {
      display: block;
      overflow: hidden;
      text-overflow: ellipsis;

    There are two options in this case:

    1. Override the text-overflow property. For instance: text-overflow: clip;
    2. If the Grid is configured for inline editing you should set larger column width, so there is enough space for the DropDownList and its text.
