You can enlarge the area by changing max-width value of .openerp .oe_topbar .oe_topbar_name class which is inside base.css file. For that you have to overwrite that class.

So create one css file inside your_module/static/src/css folder and add following code:

@charset "utf-8";
.openerp .oe_topbar .oe_topbar_name {
 max-width: 190px;
 overflow: hidden;
 display: inline-block;
 max-height: 100%;
 text-overflow: ellipsis;
 white-space: nowrap;

Go to __openerp__.py and add your css file under css like this:

'css': [

Now, restart your server and refresh the page.

Here, max-width: 150px; was given in base.css and now we are changing it's value as per our need. I changed it by 190px. You can change it to any value which is suitable to you.

How to see the db name at the same position when not in debug mode?

If you really want to do so then there is a way to see db name. Go to "web/addons/web/static/src/js/chrome.js" line 1108 and remove if(instance.session.debug) from do_update method. After this you can see db name without debug mode also.

Sorry I don't know how to override js method. So you have to make changes in source code.
