Browser: Close current tab by longpressing the tabs-icon

Browser: It would be handy to easy close the activated tab by long-pressing the tabs-icon in the menu-bar.

Sailfish Browser: Close current tab by longpressing long pressing on the tabs-icontab

Browser: It would be handy As suggested by the title; because trying to easy hit the close icon button isn't always accurate and sometimes opens the activated page again instead of closing the tab.

When I first encountered this problem, I made a patch to slightly increase the size of the close icon button and even shifted it to the right hand side of the tabs making it a little easier for those of us who are right-handed, but since making that patch, I have mocked up another version where simply long pressing on the chosen tab by long-pressing closes it without having to aim at the tabs-icon in the menu-bar.close icon button.

Good or bad idea?
