Bug Description

lazr.overlay has small icon buttons.

What happens: The Cancel and Confirm buttons are both tiny.
What should happen: The Cancel and Confirm buttons should be the size of normal push buttons, such as the "Save Changes" button on the same page.

The icon-only Cancel and Confirm buttons were designed for cases where changes are being made inline and space is therefore at a premium. (For example, if you click on a bug assignee, it should turn into a text field for changing the assignee; and because there is limited room in the table, the icon-only Cancel and Confirm buttons should be used.) It's inappropriate to use the icon-only buttons where there is bucketloads of space to use text buttons.

I agree - larger buttons would look nicer and be easier to use.

I'm setting this to Medium, but let's try to fix this soon, before the design is replicated to other places.

This is Martin's decision, and was explicitly requested (the original version had a normal submit button), so please don't fix it until talking with Martin.
