Short description of error
File browsers topbar shows a scaling issue where the buttons shrink past the size of its contents and start to overlap each other.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Open blender
  2. Select the shading workspace (or any other workspace where the file browser is included and has limited horizontal space.)
  3. Reduce the width of the file browser window
  4. Observe the icons of the buttons (back forward...) to be pushed out of the button, as the button itself scales in width and becomes smaller.

Expected result

  • The icons stay fixed inside the buttons, the button itself does not scale to a point where it becomes smaller then its contents, in this case the icons.
  • For consistency the topbar should be horizontally scrollable, just like the other topbars.

Suggested alternative behaviour, if UI elements are suposed to head in a more responsive direction

  • Breakpoints (in width), if the window gets smaller some UI elements like the location (path) is automatically moved to a second row in order to give the other elements more space.
