[Q] Dropdown menu is to wide for screen

BL 2.77
OSX 10.11.6

I’ve bumped into this quite some times now but never really took action to solve it. When i want to view the undo’s or need to select something and there are many option to choose from the screen is way to wide. The list isnt in a view from top to bottom.

Is there a possibility to change this to a list from top to down like when adding objects?
