Req'd field pop up not displaying field name correctly.

It seems that the Required field UI pop has an extra carriage return in it. I have to click in the popup and highlight the text to get it to scroll down for the field name.
See attachments.

Any idea how I can fix this?

I'll take a look at it when my passport account unlocks.
I guess I forgot my password.
Thanks for the help Ruth.

That is exactly what is happening. (I had a coworker open it.)
I would love to see a fix for this though.

Thanks for the assistance.

Hello Ruth,

I didn't see any workaround at this url. Pnly the text below

Problem

Tools > System > Security > Required fields

If you have defined "REQUIRED FIELDS" for a module and did not enter a value for
these fields, the pop up window that alert you that of the missing required
fields (list of fields):
Example:
"FOR CONFIGURATION ITEM, THE FOLLOWING FIELD/S IS MISSING"

In windows XP the list of required fields that is not entered always misses one
of the fields.
e.g When you didn't enter 1 required field you get a message without fields when
you didn't enter 2 required field you get a message
that lists only 1 required field

To duplicate, you must be on Windows XP and use the default Display Appearance
of Windows XP style. If I change the appearance to "Windows Classic style", the
error message does display all the missing requred fields.

Work around is the last line.
"If I change the appearance to "Windows Classic style", the
error message does display all the missing requred fields."

I missed it too the first time I read it.
