This bug affects the browser, mail and composer. Some buttons in the button bar
(such as Back, Forward, Get Msgs, or Print) have drop arrows next to them. In
the Modern skin with the text only view of buttons, these drop arrows overlap
the text. The "Get Msgs" button in Mail has the "s" completely obscured.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. With all other out-of-the-box configurations the same, configure preferences
to the Modern skin and Text Only buttons.
2. Restart Mozilla
3. Examine the button bar
Actual Results:  
The drop arrows are in the wrong place relative to the text on the button.

Expected Results:  
reserved more space for the button as a whole and move the drop arrow more to
the right. Perhaps something is wrong with the font size calculations?

I tried to attach an image of the bug, but the attachment system kept telling me
I had not specified a file to attach, no matter how many times I browsed or
typed the file name in. Perhaps this is another bug? I even tried with
javascript and cookies fully enabled.

Fixing this will probably depend on any of several menu text size bugs, such as
bug 206482 or bug 207593.
