Comparison between the tabs in Firefox Preferences and native OS X Lion tabs

The tabs under Preferences->Advanced (and maybe elsewhere?) don’t look and feel exactly like native OS X tabs.

- They shouldn’t have a blue highlight/glow around them
- Text in the selected tab should be white (in Lion)
- Tab switching should occur on a mouse-release event and not on mouse-down
- Pressed state (for selected and unselected tabs) is therefore missing too

This is of course not very severe, or even important, but let’s track it anyway. Maybe it’s an easy fix.

That is the focus ring, which is intended. It should only appear if you tab to the control though.

I thought it was intended, I just wanted to point out that it’s unusual for OS X.

While looking like native OS X tabs, they do not behave exactly like them. A tab should be activated on release not on press. I also still get the blue focus ring when switching between tabs with the mouse.

Thanks for following up on that, but can you file a new bug for the clicked state / behavior part of it? This bug got morphed into just handling the color of the tabs.
