Bug Description

At present there are 3 different tooltips which can be seen throughout the ubuntu desktop. This creates an inconsistency in the pixel perfect ubuntu desktop we are trying to achieve with Ubuntu Precise. I cannot think of any logical reasoning behind why we need 3 different tooltip designs.

This is present in Ubuntu 12.04 Daily Build, with all the latest updates installed.

I have attached 3 screenshots showing the tooltips used in different places.

Should I create another bug report for the tooltips appearing for the window control, which actually are not supposed to be appearing?

@Omerk Akram, I see that the tool tips for the window controls no longer appear. However, if you hover over Firefox's tabs or Thunderbird's tabs you can see a tooltip design similar to tooltip design #1. Hence the inconsistency still remains.

Unity 2D uses a fourth style of tooltips that imitates quicklists -- bug 964602.

Can't be fixed betwen the window manager and the application.

The application tooltip was meant to be similar, but indeed it's not the same as unity
