Attached image screenshot
Firefox 16.0a1 (2012-07-03)
Device: Galaxy Nexus, Asus TF 101
OS: 4.0.2, 4.0.3

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open Fennec
2. Browse to
3. Dismiss the doorhanger by tapping on "Always Show" button
4. Refresh the page opened at step 2
5. After all popups are loaded, switch to the tab from step 2
6. Repeat steps 4-5 until there will be at least 30+ tabs opened
7. Open the Tab Menu and slide do close tabs as quick as you can

Expected results:
All tabs will be closed, except the default one.

Actual result:
At some point, tabs are not closed any more and some UI issues can be easily noticed in Tabs Menu (see attached screenshot)

This also reproducible on:
Firefox Mobile 16 beta 6 build 2
Aurora 17.0a2 (2012-09-04)
Nightly 18.0a1 (2012-09-04)
Device: Samsung Galaxy Tab (Android 3.1)
Does using the "x" also cause this problem?

The issue is not reproducible using 'x' to close tabs
Whiteboard: ui-responsiveness
I've been running into this a lot recently - perhaps a side effect of Lucas's UI responsiveness bugs?

1) Have at least 3 tabs open
2) Close one tab
3) While the animation is going, close another tab

The tab from #3 gets stuck (see screenshot), and you can't interact with it. You have to close and reopen the tabs tray.
Re-nom'ing since this is now much easier than described in comment 0.

Note that you have to close the tabs by swiping.

Yep - using the STR in comment 4, I see this in the current Nightly.
