Cropped error UI

The "Actions:" section of the error message got cropped, please see attached pic.

Repro: try to use the Forms Previewer without being connected to a Mac to get the error shown in the attached pic.

I removed the 'Actions:' text. If there are any actions that can be run we will show clickable buttons. The extra text is superfluous and isn't displayed in XS either.

For this particular error there are no actions available that the user can take, so it was expected that there would be no clickable options.
