mockup of header

Showing a number on its own in the tab menu doesn't make it quite clear enough that a menu exists underneath.

Let's add a little down carat to make that more discoverable.

I assume this appears after the animation? Do you have assests for it?

The carat should show throughout the number animation, as shown here

Should the text change orange after animation?

This patch shows the caret all the time (starting from 1 to 2 transition).
This also changes the color to orange (or the highlighted color on the device) after the animation.

This should be applied on top of Bug 700936.
