[lug] OT: Firefox Interface Tab Config

I guess my issue is that I'm more interested in access to tabs I've just created than to a bookmark tool bar...I want what I'm actually working with to be closest because I'm switching back and forth with what I have. The bookmarks tool bar may be for very common and often-used bookmarks, but what I'm looking at right now in my current session seems to be a single experience...that bookmark bar is a separate experience. Priority current session, followed by a bookmark to replace part of a session. Too bad users can't just drag-n-drop tabs and other tool bars where they want them (with a "lock" function to prevent accidental change).

For the record, they switched the tab bar ABOVE the address bar since each tab is (usually) for a different address and therefore the address bar is a "piece" of the tab and makes more UI sense to have it below (otherwise it is surprising to see the address change when you switch tab)

Yes! It's the simple things that keep my brain from itching...I think I would have looked for months before finding this one. Thanks!
