The more recent Firefox nightlies added a feature where if you have many tabs open and you open a new tab with ctrl+click on a link, you see a blue notification on the right scroll arrow signifying that a new tab has opened but is not shown. However, this notification in Vista/7 does not fit the user interface; it looks very XP-themed, mainly because of 1) the color and 2) the lack of rounding. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open many tabs so that Firefox has a scrolling tab bar.
2. In the leftmost tab, ctrl+click on a link to open it in a new tab.
3. A blue notification appears on the right scroll button.
Actual Results:  
The right scroll bar becomes square blue for a second to notify user.

Expected Results:  
Same results, but a better "look" to the notification.
