Our tab UI could be improved in landscape view on phones. Let's make better use of UI real estate by allowing tabs to scroll horizonally.

Swiping up to close in landscape, but swiping left/right to close in portrait seems a bit confusing.
It's a pretty common interaction on Android ICS+ nowadays. 

Take a look at Stock Browser, Chrome, the App Switcher. They all use a similar model and it's fairly easy to pick up on. If it is too much for people to handle, we can add in a more visual affordance, like a close button, if need be.
I'll be working on this from now on. I'll start with the horizontal listview/gridview changes in tabs tray.

This is definitely not fixed on the v20 and v21 builds you mentioned. Looks like it is only landed for v22 yet anyway.
Right that doesn't make sense.

This is on trunk (mozilla-central, 22).
