Network Tools: Obstruction of Ping tab contents.

Bug Description

The default window size (which is not remembered between launches) does not allow for the Ping tab's graph to be fully displayed - even the legend gets cut off, let alone the graph it self. The Details table also suffers the same issue as described in Bug #856387 (table on the "Devices" tab).

This last one is of the Ping tab, after 5 pings, with the Details expanded. As you can see, there is a TON of wasted space. The graph does expand with the window size; however, just like the IP Information table (Devices tab), the Details table does not expand.

The first part of your bug is a duplicate of 891852, which has been reported by numerous people. It would probably be best for this defect to focus on the Ping tab since as far as I see, nobody else has reported that. Can you edit this bug if you agree?

Sorry, in my above comment I meant to say duplicate of 856387.

856387 Network tools IP information list is too small to see data

Bug has been updated.

In addition, I left a note on Bug #856387 to let them know the table on the Ping tab is affected too.

summary: - Unusable IP Information table and partial obstruction of Ping tab.
