A few things to say here: the close icon is not sugarized. The coloring of the tabs is not in a Sugar style and the text does not elipsize - hence the tabs can have different sizes (see Firefox for an example here).

Unless we show the tab bar at all times (i.e. when you only have one window open), how would a second tab ever be added (other than via a web page opening a new window)?
P.S. Perhaps we could land the sugarized scroll bar at the same time, if I remember we just didn't have a clean way to apply it the Mozilla theme. Pretty sure I spotted the tab visual theme in the same place.
