using javascript you can do it, check this post

https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/193234/increase-the-width-of-project-field

sample code

<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');
}

});

Is there any chance that Atlassian is fixing this? I just took a look in the current server version and it still looks the same - without any reason since the drop-downs that are used some rows beneath this are also bigger.

Also - this script does not seem to work with the current version of JIRA :-(
