Details

(Whiteboard: [Australis:M-][Australis:P-])

In bug 908796, we discovered that for some reason, the tab strip was being totally repainted during one frame of the transition of tab close.

We found a workaround where we stopped z-index'ing the nav-bar on top of the background tabs.

This has, however, made it so that the background tabs slightly discolour the nav-bar top border on hover. Steven has suggested we might be able to do some fancy pixel stuff to tab-background-start/-middle/-end to mitigate this visual glitch.

Tentatively assigning to Steven for graphics.

What magic might we do here, Stephen?

We can *maybe* make the bottom row of pixels translucent to fake it. This also appears to have affected the tab separators and the pinned tab glow…
This should no longer be necessary since we backed out bug 908796.
