The tabs aren't even supposed to have any transparency.

Ah, I'm glad to find this bug.

As it is now, it is quite tricky to see which is the active tab. I was about to file a bug to make the active tab title bold, but this bug should sort it out.
shorlander: can you help us with some direction here, looks pretty bad on dark glass backgrounds.

I think this is actually a dupe of bug 570280. I just need to update my patch there. But as seen in the mockup attached here they should be much more opaque and specific CSS values are in attachment 453121 [details] [diff] [review].

Verified fixed using an hourly build.  I can finally read background tabs titles on top of my dark desktop backgrounds and especially command prompt.
