(Beta) Tab hitbox regression

Unread post by twocows » 2018-08-13, 02:58

Apologies if wrong section, all the beta-related forum sections appear to be locked.

When using Pale Moon 28.0.0b5 as a maximized window with tabs on top enabled, the top row of pixels does not register tab clicks, at least on my setup. I've attached a GIF I recorded, which demonstrates first that tabs still switch properly when clicking below the top row and then that tabs don't switch properly when clicking the top row.

I believe this bug is a regression; I never had this issue in 27 or earlier and I'm fairly certain I would have noticed it.

OS: Win7-64
Browser: Pale Moon 64-bit, 28.0.0b5
Additional note: This wasn't a clean install of the beta. I updated to it from my 27 install by switching the release channel in the prefs folder to unstable.

Does this still happen if you do this in Pale Moon's safe mode? Or with a new profile?

It does not, and in fact it looks like disabling the style I was using fixed the issue completely (Dark Fox). It was a pretty old style, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised it started to break. Thanks!

This issue is present with the official lightweight themes, i.e. http://www.palemoon.org/persona/
So it isn't an issue with an old theme.
