Mozilla /5.0 (Android;Linux armv7l;rv:9.0a1) Gecko/20110914 Firefox/9.0a1 Fennec/9.0a1 Device: HTC Desire Z (Android 2.3) Steps to reproduce: 1. Open a few tabs 2. Go to tab panel 3. tap on a tab between the middle of the tab and the X button Expected results: nothing should happen if the tab is in focus, if not it should get in focus Actual result: the tab is closed, please see the video: http://www.screencast.com/users/AndreeaDiana/folders/Jing/media/5018c266-0b1b-42d9-90ce-199c3cb4dd53 Note: - this is happening only on Android 2.3 - I made the video using DeviceAnywhere because using the real device would not be so clear that the click is not performed on the "X" button.
This is probably by design as they have a large 'hit' zone.
This is far too easy to hit, currently. The 'hit' zone of the close button is for the phone UI at least, far too great, now. Tapping in the middle of the thumbnail even cause the tab to be closed.
