(I guess this issue exists in Trunk builds too, but I can't use them anymore.)
Can something be done to fix both applications ?

In (Thunderbird) bug 252393 comment 13,
... unlike the 'Get Mail' and 'Print' buttons, the 'File' icon and dropmarker
behave synchronously wrt :hover and :active.
And, if I remember well, you replied to me that this was caused by the File button not having default behaviours, which the other two buttons have.

Today, when verifying bug 282189 resolution (which is the Toolkit->XPFE) port of the former bug),
I noticed that the Classic theme File button in SeaMonkey has the same/worse issue:
*the icon and dropmarker behave as one button.
*the dropmarker is right next to the File text, which looks rather "wrong".

This is by design.

Offhand I'm guessing that the width is being applied in the wrong place.
