Both solutions: Add an icon to Scan button to make it stand out.
Solution A: Add a cancel scan button to each tab.

All Scans" button to stop all scans.
Hi Jurand,

Solution B looks much better than A.
Having both "close tab" and "cancel scan" icons on a tab doesn't look
pretty in solution A.
I wonder if the "Scan" and "Cancel" buttons could be combined into one
button in solution B.

I agree with this. The "Scan" button could turn into a "Cancel" button
while the scan is running, and turn back into a "Scan" button when the
scan is finished or is canceled.

Personally, I'm not sure I'd ever use "Abort All Scans" unless I was
quitting zenmap in which case I'd hope that the scans were terminated
when closing the window, maybe others would find it useful though.

Yes, "Abort All Scans" seems unnecessary.
