Hidden tray icons panel have unwanted line wrapping(s)

Submitted by litemininyuszika on January 2, 2009 to Annoyance, Bug, Usability

In the hidden tray icons panel, Windows shows icons in two lines even if only 3(!) icons are hidden!

UPDATE: If I have 5 hidden icons, lines are 3 icons wide. More inconsistency!

(beta 1 build 7000)

Only wrap lines if needed!
If moving and resizing this panel can be allowed also it may be perfect!

Superbar IE8 Tab Switching Bugs

Submitted by BraedenP on November 4, 2008 to Annoyance, Bug, Usability

1. The tab images should update, even when the tab is not active.
2. IE8 should be brought to then front AND switch to the selected tab when clicking on a thumbnail.
