Bug Description

current build number: 123
device name: arale
channel: ubuntu-touch/rc-proposed/meizu.en

  Installé : 0.23+15.04.20150922-0ubuntu1

I don't know if it's either because the tap area is too small or the sensible area is misplaced but the "close tab" button is hard to press and very often end up in opening the tab instead of closing it.

To reproduce, open several tabs, reveal them and try to close several by tapping the close icon (cross at right of the title)
