Also depending on the skin, not all skin authors skin the animations on the IE tabs. the close button not being skinned is a bug that I have mentioned to the developer of windowblinds

Which skins are you attempting to use? If you still have the problem even after updating, could you please post your updated WB System Info?

The close button is an issue that has been brought to the attention of Neil (developer of WB/SKS) and is being worked on: https://forums.wincustomize.com/371231

 

It looks like WB is using the close button for the Win7 tooltip instead of the tabs close button.
