When using tabbed browsing I find it difficult at times to determine which tab is
the active tab.  I don't know if this is only on Windows but to me the slight
shading difference does not have a high enough level of conspicuity (hey I ride
motorcycles and we use the term conspicuity :) ).

Is it possible to make it so the active tab is more easily discernible from the
non-active tabs?

Are you using the Classic theme?

In the Classic theme, using 2002031104 (0.9.9) on Win2k, it is hard to
distinguish active from non-active tabs.  They're all the same color; just a
little shading on the edges indicates which tab is "in front".  This makes the
tabs hard to use.

Using the Modern theme, it's easy to distinguish active from non-active tabs
because they are different colors.

I think it is either a dup of bug 109607 or bud 136659
and yeah, I tried the classic theme and I agree that it is hard to
see the active tab at one view.

Yes that is it.  So I am changing the bug to a themes issue.  Could the Classic
theme use a different color for active versus inactive tabs?

would be possible,
please add comments to bug 109607 because if you're talking about classic
theme, this is a dup :) I think somebody is working on it there at the moment.
