I just encountered this on a client install, so

If you have lots of long category names, you should be able to expand the width on your site via CSS.

In the current state, with “all categories”, the selector is very, very narrow, plus the number of topics reduces even more the category names length.

I customized my CSS to make it wider, but I think this default behavior is a bit of an issue.
