Bug Description

when in front of the systemsettings window:

there are navigationbuttons on the top of the window's Form, like : 'allsettings' - 'screens'.

but the shadoweffect of the right button isnt positioned all the wat to its begin of the button, its like 2 pixels further to the right. even when you hold the mousebutton, there would be an orange rectangle around the button, even this is wrong positioned.

Confirmed, but:

1. Your explanation was difficult to understand so per comment #2 next time please attach a screenshot of the problem; and

2. In Gnome Shell (Ubuntu 17.10+) those navigation buttons don't exist.
