On MacOS 9.04, using Mozilla 0.9.5, creating too many tabs in one window (repeatedly pressing Ctrl+T) can obscure the tab-closing "x" icon. The tabs keep extending off the edge of the window. The problem is reproducible in Linux, (on an i686 with Slackware 8.0), but less severe. In linux, you can get the X icon back in view by widening the window to what seems to be an infinite length, but Mac places a limit on the maximum window width, so eventually the tabs extend beyond reach and cannot be destroyed without closing the entire window. This also causes some minor annoyance with layout on both platforms, because gecko renders the window as being at least wide enough to reach the tab. Because of this, if the tab is off the screen, you have to scroll right to get the whole window.
