Camifox Tab Anomaly Rated 4 out of 5 stars

OK, I realize that when a user experiences a technical problem, that he or she is requested not to submit a review. Well, this isn't a review actually and I am unaware of any other available means through which to communicate this information, so here goes.

Tyler, I am running Firefox 3.6.11 on Mac OS X 10.5.8 using Camifox 3.6.5 which worked just fine for me before updating to the latest release of Firefox and Camifox. Now, when I open a sufficient number of tabs to overflow the tab bar, the scroll button is activated and the tabs move rapidly from left to right.

Falconer, once responded to this problem in a now locked forum. Apparently, the source of the problem was determined and fixed but has since resurfaced. Regardless, I would like to address Falconer's comments. I am not your average computer user. I am a retired IT professional with better than average trouble shooting skills honed over more than 40 years of computer experience including many years of programming and PC technical support. That said, I can assure Falconer that I use no tab extensions. Regardless, I disabled every extension and the problem still persists. I reset all of my user set about:config tab settings to the system default values and the problem still persists.

I have taken reasonable steps to determine the cause of this Camifox anomaly. I suspect that it has to do with the close button having been moved to beneath the faveicon. Why? Well, because both TC Media•Tech's Chromifox Basic 3.6.5 theme and the Leanfox 0.8 theme, which is built on top of Camifox, do not have this feature and do not exhibit this problem. They both work properly and that would seem to indicate that this is a Camifox 3.6.5 anomaly related to the close button relocation beneath the faveicon. At least that's my gut instinct.

I hope a member of Media•Tech reads this and take sthe opportunity to troubleshoot and fix this otherwise great Firefox theme.
