Apparently there’s an extension for Chrome but that doesn’t help me much as I’m on Firefox. Also not really keen on needing to install a thing to prevent very simple behavior in a web app, but maybe that’s just me being stodgy.
So I did what the product forums suggested and sent feedback off to Google. Funny thing is, when I sent it, the form just sort of disappeared, leaving the send button hanging out beneath it. So I am not sure if it actually sent or not. Oh well. Recording it here, too, for grins.
Please consider adding a user setting to turn off Gmail message clipping. It’s bothersome because it’s either hiding the unsubscribe link from email I signed up for but no longer want to receive, or hiding content I signed up for and want to receive.
In the screenshot included, you can see how half of Pinterest’s unsubscribe link is hidden. I am good about clicking unsubscribe instead of “spam” to help avoid catching legitimate messages. I will continue to be diligent about this regardless of whether a message has been clipped, but I don’t believe every user will be so diligent. It’s only one click to “Spam” something, after all!
I have fairly snappy internet so it does not concern me to receive long or large messages. The only time clipping would be useful for me is on a 3G or 4G phone connection — and there I use an app. It would be very helpful if I could turn off this clipping setting. Thank you!
