They need to go a lot more than skin deep to make it a good browser.

  • Maintain cross-platform consistency (Where applicable)

While the new theme has been revealed progressively, it is still a work in progress and the team is constantly making new adjustments and additions.

You all realize you wont have to upgrade from 3.x to 4.x, right? Heck they are still making 2.x builds.

Enough to say that I HATE the new UI. Why changing something that works?
Firefox 4 will still support the menu bar with file, edit, view, etc (you can turn that off in current builds) and will also support tabs-on-bottom from what I've read.
Oh, if that's available right off the bat in the options, without tweaking, it's awesome then.

You'll need:

Strata40

StrataBuddy
Fission
Tab Progress Bar (Optional)

To Switch From a Removed Menu to a Consolidated One:
Extensions/TinyMenu ? Arantius

You can remove the New Tab & Refresh buttons in my screen shot, you can also completely remove the menu if you want. If you remove the refresh button you can place it on the end of the address bar. You don't have to use a transparent theme either and you can move the tabs below the address bar. My default config:

Very good post notsograymatter. I followed your instructions and my Firefox looks just like yours except I don't know how to make it black. Could anyone tell me how to make Firefox black?

Thanks Simon

You'll want to change your aero color to black.

Start > Type: Personalization > Press Enter > Window Color (at the bottom) > Click Show Color Mixer > Drag all to the left
