Found and fixed a bug that caused the problem. closing a tab will create a space between the rest of the tabs and the New Tab button.

Known bugs for this release
Some extensions, such as the Microsoft Editor extension, do not work on Linux. As soon as they are installed, they are locked and deactivated. We are investigating. Users of some ad blocking extensions may experience playback errors on YouTube. To work around this problem, temporarily disabling the extension should allow playback to continue. Some users still come across an issue where all tabs and extensions crash immediately with STATUS_INVALID_IMAGE_HASH error. The most common cause of this error is outdated security or anti-virus software from vendors such as Symantec, and in these cases updating this software will resolve the issue. Kaspersky Internet Suite users who have the associated extension installed can sometimes view the web pages as Gmail is not loading. This error is caused by the fact that the main Kaspersky software is outdated, so it is corrected by ensuring that the latest version is installed. Some users see bookmarks duplicated after some previous fixes were made in this area. The most common way to trigger this is to install Edge’s stable channel and then sign in with an account that’s already signed in to Edge. Some users see swaying behavior when scrolling using trackpad gestures or touch screens. Here, scrolling in one dimension also results in subtle page scrolling in the other. Note that this only affects certain websites and appears to be worse on some devices. This is likely related to the work in progress to bring the lag back to par with Edge Legacy behavior. So if this behavior is not desirable, we can temporarily disable it. Disable edge flag: // flags / # edge-experimental-scrolling.
