When multiple pinned tabs are present in an OSX Australis window, visual clipping and artifacts appear in the toolbar UI.  

There's three separate points of interface fail (see attached):

a. Misaligned pinned tab
b. Overlap of fullsize and new tab button
C. Misaligned favicons

Steps to reproduce:

1. On OSX, create at least 5 pinned tabs in one window
2. Reduce the window size

Is this even an Australis regression?

> Is this even an Australis regression?

At least on OS X it is, apart from the weird overflow UI which all overlaps, even on holly. Everything else is tabsintitlebar related. Considering we used to only do this in maximized mode on Windows, it would have been a lot harder to hit there. Don't know if (parts of) this bug even reproduce(s) on Windows in the first place.

I can't reproduce the  tab/icon problem in the screenshot ("a" and "c").

But I do get the New Tab and All Tabs buttons sliding over the next/previous tab overflow arrows, and if the window gets a bit smaller still the Fullscreen window button with slide over that mess as well.
Calling this P3- because while breaking primary UI is terrible, it's OS X only (?) and I'd tend to think that people will keep windows with pinned tabs fairly large (as opposed to a problem with popup windows, which tend to be small).

This reproduces on WinXP in Australis. Fixing (a) and (c) is not hard, patch coming up presto. I think (b) is pre-Australis, and once we fix (a) and (c) that can be lower priority.

fix tabbrowser-tabs min-height for Australis so it doesn't get squashed when the non-abs-pos bits have 0 width,

Makes sense to me. Thanks Gijs!
