Created attachment 8690503 [details] Need to swipe tabs into each other to close in landscape In normal (portrait) mode, the list of tabs shows the thumbnails in vertical order, and tabs can be closed by swiping them away horizontally. In landscape mode, the list of tabs switches to a horizontal layout, but tabs must still be closed by swiping horizontally. This is both inconsistent and not the expected behavior. The expected behavior of swiping horizontally (into other tabs) would be to reorder them, and consequently swiping vertically should close.
Isn't it consistent because it's always a horizontal swipe? In landscape we use a grid of tabs, so even with vertical swiping we'd swipe into other tabs. @antlam: Any thought's on this?
(In reply to Sebastian Kaspari (:sebastian) from comment #1) > Isn't it consistent because it's always a horizontal swipe? That would be an argument if the tabs were laid out the same way, but they're actually laid out opposite. >In landscape we use a grid of tabs, so even with vertical swiping we'd swipe into other tabs. I presume when you get a second row the tab titles provide the empty space you swipe into, so it would still be much better. FWIW I checked Chrome and they do it correctly, the swiping is always in the opposite direction of how the tabs are laid out.
Ideally this would be addressed in bug 1178794. Meanwhile, I'm hesitant to just switch this because I think the logic here is that swiping up-and-down is for navigation while left-and-right is to dismiss. So, to Sebastian's point, it is kind of "consistent" in that sense.
