Might be able to eliminate one of those, "There seems to be an issue with the tabs sometimes displaying the close button and sometimes not."

This is actually a feature where by when the number of tabs reaches a certain size (9 on a maximized window in my case) the close button disappears off the inactive tabs in order to use that space to display the page title. The idea being that if you can't tell what the tab is then chance are you don't want to close it without first selecting the tab to check it out.
