I believe the current behaviour is common to all components of all versions of LibreOffice & OpenOffice.
Many toolbar boxes (Font Name; Font Size; Line Style; Line Width; Line Color; Area Style/Filling etc etc) are fixed width & take up excessive space in toolbars.
Every other application I have used (MS Word; Excel; Firefox etc etc etc) makes the width of these boxes user-adjustable.
Please include the option of adjusting toolbar box widths in LibreOffice ASAP!
Note: I am currently using LibO 3.3.2 in Ubuntu 11.04 but have been complaining about the same behaviour in OOo 3.2.0 in Ubuntu 10.04 & OOo 3.3.0 in XP & all previous versions for as long as I can remember.
When I refer to Microsoft Office components, I should specify Office 2003 & previous versions.
Office 2010 seems less good!

This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:

As requested, I checked in LibO 3.5.0 beta2 and there is still no possibility to customize the width of the Toolbar boxes.
So I ask for this Feature Request to have status changed back to NEW & hopefully to be acted on one day...
The most annoying is the font dropdown list on the toolbar: with graphite font features, font names can be extremely long. And one can see only part of it even on a wide monitor…
How did this bug get labelled as FIXED?
I just installed LibO 126.96.36.199 in Ubuntu 12.04LTS & the problem is still there.
I have LibO 188.8.131.52 in Ubuntu 13.10 also & the problem is still there.
