overflow-menu as view-more-symbolic, and horizontal
Needs ReviewPublic

use the 3 dots icons as view-more-symbolic, as traditionally in
the iconography of most systems those are for menus of actions
that didn't fit in a toolbar (as the overflow-menu name tells)
while the 3 lines one means the main menu of an application and
should always appear at most in a single place in a whole app
this makes it less confusing as users will use our apps together
apps written in other toolkits, web pages where this is common as
well, as well apps on their phones which will all use this paradigm.

adapt the horizontal version too, to look like what firefox uses
tough i would make it black as well, as now it may always look disabled

Test Plan

shown the mixer applet (which will need its own rr) which looks lighter
and causes less confusion between the global panel menu icon and the little
overflow menus of the mixer items

Yes, I very much like the overflow and the usage you describe, as per the discussion on Telegram and https://phabricator.kde.org/D11231, I think mixer is however not an example where it should be used, because in the mixer it's not an overflow of functionality, but rather a menu on its own.

So +1 for this request here, the change on the mixer I'd -1 though.
