User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/534.24 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/11.0.696.65 Safari/534.24

I'm currently using this script to disable tab scrolling:
.tabbrowser-tab {min-width: 016px !important;}
.tabbrowser-tab {clip-width: 016px !important;}

The problem is that the tab scroll button flashes then disappears.  This causes the tab to resize itself twice and makes the animation look very clunky. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Reduce your min tab size using the script or using this addon https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/custom-tab-width/
2. Open tabs until it fills your tab bar
3. Watch the tab scroll button appear and disappear

Actual Results:  
You will see your tab resizing twice and an annoying scroll button appearing and disappearing.

Expected Results:  
The scroll button shouldn't even be seen and one fluid tab animation should occur.
