When moused over, Firefox tabs blend in to the window

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gtk-qt-engine-kde4

Kubuntu-KDE4 8.04 Beta
Firefox 3 Beta 4

When you mouse over a tab in Firefox 3, the tab blends in with the rest of the window. Changing what tab you are using causes the tabs to repaint correctly. If you mouse over an rss feed and then quickly mouse down to a tab before the blue glow around the rss feed button goes away, the tab will paint correctly, but only as long as your mouse stays over it.

I can confirm the problem with tabs blending into the rest of the window on current Hardy.

In Konqueror the tabs remain "inset" in the window. They are also underlined blue.

Epiphany and Pidgin's tabs don't blend in, but they still don't gain the blue underline when moused over.

I can confirm this bug in Kubuntu 8.10 final release, with Firefox 3.0.3 . Sometimes form windows disappear in the html-pages, too (like textboxes, checkmarks, radios, etc.).

Confirmed in Kubuntu Jaunty. Screenshot attached: The second tab in the screenshot had the mouse pass over it. The other two did not.

Sadly, gtk-qt-engine is a quite broken piece of software and has been removed from distribution. (See bug 404930)
Unfortunately this means that the large number of bugs will not be seeing fixes. :(

For now, the best integration option for KDE is the QtCurve style, (gtk2-engines-qtcurve) which offers a theme quite similar to the default Oxygen theme. The configuration module for gtk-qt-engine has been salvaged and is now living in the kcm-gtk package, which will be available and installed by default in Kubuntu 9.10.

Thanks for understanding. This package tried its best, but in the end did not live up to the standards required by anybody who doesn't like looking at a broken Oxygen imitation.
