If you set the foregroundColor to, say, red, and the backgroundColor to, say, yellow, the text of the tabs will show one or the other as each tab is "selected".
Is this what you are seeing? Or did you mean that the entirety of the tab is colored? For me, each tab, when selected, is blue.

Hi all. 

I n a tab button on a Mac, for some reason in the IDE, the text of the first tab is green and subsequent tabs are red. In a standalone, the text of the first button is YELLOW! No colors or effects are applied. 

Obviously not a show stopper, but people are asking me what the significance is. I have not found a property where I could change that (which might actually be cool!)
