Disable truncation with ellipses in URL's?

Is there a way to prevent URL's from being truncated with ellipses? I come across a lot of ticket comments where I have to mouseover all kinds of links because I can't see where they lead at a glance. Maybe this could be a profile option?

    I'm sorry, Lighthouse by default truncates the URLs and we do not currently have a way to switch that off per profile. I view the path or URL from my browsers status bar at the bottom of my window.

    Yeah, I do too, which is the problem. I can't see what a link links to without moving my mouse over it. Oh well.

    We're more than open to ideas, but so far, minus a few formatting code problems, you're the first discussion with url shortening that I can recall. I think a majority of Lighthouse users just open URL's in a new tab or window.

    Still, it's much nicer to be able to see where a link leads without having to move the mouse or open the link, especially in things like the RSS feed.
