Components: Switch the orientation of the Popover Component only if there's more space #3947

Sometimes on small screens popovers keep switching their orientation because there's not enough space in both directions, this PR tackes this issue by switching the direction only if there's more space than the current direction.

As a follow-up we may try to limit the height/width of the popover if the available space is not big enough.

(Pretty sure there's an issue about this bug, but can't find it)

Testing instructions

  • On a small screen
  • Open/close popovers several times, they should not change their position constantly if there's not enough space on both sides (left/right, top/bottom).

(Some popovers to try: post visibility, post schedule, inserter).

This works well. Noting that on small viewports, I cannot get the sidebar popovers to display at all (unrelated to these changes).
