Sometimes I end up with a lot of accumulated tabs, and want to close several of them while I'm at it. But when a page has a long title, the «Cancel» panel is too high and hides the close button of the next tab (see screenshot). I then have to wait for the panel to disappear before being able to go on which makes the process tedious :)
@antlam: I remember we talked about making closing multiple tabs easier (e.g. selecting tabs and closing them). Do you know if we have a bug about that?

Are you thinking about bug 1243834? That really works best when it's a tab "grid"..

To me, this bug seems to be more about the snack bar than anything else. Even though swipe-to-dismiss is available, users' still seem to be gravitating towards the 'x' visual (that's hidden on the last tab sometimes by the snack bar).

Right. However the snackbar is only in the way if you want to close multiple tabs. :)

Btw. if you touch outside of the snackbar then it will be dismissed immediately.
