Menus are too big on Linux when using Classic theme

Reported by, May 19 2014

Issue description

UserAgent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/36.0.1985.8 Safari/537.36

Steps to reproduce the problem:
Compare menus (Chrome menu, context menus) size between Classic and GTK+ themes.

What is the expected behavior?
They should have the same size.

What went wrong?
Since 36.0.1964.2, menus have bigger horizontal and vertical padding when using Classic theme, unlike previous versions where both themes did look the same.

Did this work before? Yes 36.0.1951.5

Chrome version: 36.0.1985.8  Channel: dev
OS Version: Fedora 20
Flash Version: Shockwave Flash 13.0 r0

Screenshots : menus were the same for both themes in 36.0.1951.5, GTK+ hasn't changed, now Classic has too much padding.

I don't really want to own this bug, but I do think it would be fixed by

Has this made it into a release yet?

I can confirm this is still a problem as of 37.0.2054.3 dev (64-bit).
It also affects the context menu, regardless of the theme used.

Moving all non essential bugs to the next Milestone.

This issue has already been moved once and is lower than Priority 1,therefore removing mstone.
So, still no progress on this bug, and I can't find the files to try fixing it myself on my own computer. Version 48.0.2552.0 dev (64-bit) still includes this bug, and since the menu for an image with a hyperlink attached takes up almost half the screen's height, this is still a major annoyance for me.
+erg, do you think this is something we should fix? It seems like a grey area (if your desire is GTK nativeness, use the GTK theme).

I'd be fine with a policy where gtk style menus only showed up in gtk mode. I'd be fine if gtk menus showed up consistently everywhere. I think it's this weird half-way point (gtk theming / chrome sizing) which is wrong.

I don't really care that much which way it is resolved.

agreed on all the above points. Perhaps the community should decide. First CL that fixes it either way wins.
How do you define "chrome sizing" ?
Shouldn't the "classic theme" match Windows, which doesn't have the big padding ?

When you say "half-way point", is it about the colors ?
> "chrome sizing"

this sizing is probably coming from/matching ChromeOS

> When you say "half-way point", is it about the colors ?

yes, that is what he meant. The colors are GTK colors regardless of Chrome's theme mode.
