SeaMonkey Bug - Tab Toolbar's Close Button is smaller than Open a New Tab, and it's Tooltip is missing

Just noticed that 1) the 'Close Tab' button on the Tab Toolbar is 
smaller than the 'Open a New Tab' button, and 2) that it doesn't have a 
Tooltip.

I've many times wondered why a tab wouldn't go away when I was clicking 
that Close Tab button. It was first now that I realized that the button 
didn't fill up the entire height (and the relative width) of the Tab 
Tool, and thus leaving an inactive area around it.

I see no reason for NOT utilizing the whole height for the 'Close Tab' 
button, as is done for the 'Open a New Tab' button. I consider this a 
bug - and UI annoyance.

The 'Close Tab' should - of course - have a Tooltip too.

Umm not on mine (SM 1.1.1 Linux). the close tab (box w/x in it) is
actually a little larger; perhaps because it is a box vs the small
page+star icon for open tab. However, I suppose it depends on which
theme you are using; I am using the standard "Modern" theme. Just
checked: nope it's the same in the classic theme as well. However,
you're right about the no tooltip & the box not filling the entire
toolbar. You just need to adjust your aim a little better :-)

Can you take a screenshot and post somewhere?

Found it - thanks :-)

Looks pretty much the same as mine w/Classic except the colors are a
lighter shade on my version of linux.

Looks the same in the Modern theme as well.

Please add your findings to my bug report, in order to help the one that 
eventually gets is assigned to fix it, e.g. those parts that are not an 
issue on your specific platform. I think I reported it as being an issue 
on all OS:es.

How do I import SeaMonkey v2.0.14's addressbooks into SeaMonkey v2.9.1's addresbooks?
