<script type="text/javascript">  
jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
	JIRA.bind(JIRA.Events.NEW_CONTENT_ADDED, function (e,context) {				
				callFunction();
			});
			callFunction();
			
function callFunction(){
				$('#project-single-select').css('max-width','500px');
				$('#project-single-select').css('width','500px');
				$('#project-field').css('max-width','500px');
				$('#project-field').css('width','500px');
}
