If the button has a long text. The text won't truncate. And the button can span beyond the screen too. Below is the screenshot:

Dont make buttons with useless captions would solve the problem.

I believe the title bar buttons should have a maximum width and then truncate their text

I checked the bbUI.css. It doesn't handle that. I set the max width of the titlebar button container to 100%, and truncate the button if the text overflows. Here is the screenshot of my solution:

Is this the right way to go?

Yes, the title bar buttons do not handle a maximum width scenario in the current code. The css-maxwidth should be set to 253px
