- Start Nightly
- Open a new tab
- Click on the speech bubble of the fox icon on top-left

- Onboarding overlay displayed.

- Nothing happened.

For now we implemented the speech bubble by button::after; but for some reason button::after is not able to receive onclick event (while div::after can). Although this is confusing and there's a bug filed (Bug 1382110), but I was told ::before and ::after pseudo-elements have no definition on standard whether it can receive click events.

So, as we can't expect this issue would be fixed shortly, we may have to workaround this problem by making the bubble an individual HTML element.
If I remove position:absolute I can keep it valid. But the line breaking behavior changes as I do that so I can't break them into 2 lines. Still investigating. If I make the line wrap successful we may just need to change CSS rather than changing DOM structure.

This patch fixes the problem by use "display: inline-block" and remove "position: absolute" for button::after. It seems that the click listener stop working on ::after only if I add "position: absolute" (or fixed).

The speech bubble in notification is left unchanged with "position: absolute". (I need to move it out from common style though).

Mossop may you take a look for this patch?
Per offline discussion with Verdi, please allow me with some trivial css tweaks in this patch:
- The fox icon for overlay should align with the icon in notification.
- The tour link in overlay should not have white background on hover or active.
