(I'm sorry, I meant mainwidget instead of mainwindow there.)

I found https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/stylesheet-examples.html#customizing-qtabwidget-and-qtabbar.
I tried the following and they both seemed to work:
win.tabBar.setStyleSheet("QTabBar::tab { padding: 2px }")
mainwidget.setStyleSheet("QTabBar::tab { padding: 2px }")

However, when adding more tabs, only the selected tabs had the correct
size, while the unselected ones were too small, with text bleeding
from the edges.
Moreover, the color changed as well (no blue highlighting of selected
tab anymore).
Any ideas?
