Firefox 2.0

I upgraded Firefox on my Mac to 2.0.. I like what I see but there are somethings that I didn't..

First was the close button on each tab.. I like it on the right side where it was in 1.5.

To get rid of if use the "about:config" and then change the following:

browser.tabs.closeButtons to 3
browser.tabs.tabMinWidth to 0

(Thanks to Justin for those hints).

Now the other thing I did not like was the "List All tabs" box on the right. To get rid of it, do the following:
create a file in your Profiles/{random}.default/chrome called userChrome.css

/* Disable "List all Tabs" Button */
.tabs-alltabs-button {
display: none !important;
}

/* Disable Container box for "List all Tabs" Button */
.tabs-alltabs-box {
display: none !important;
}

then quit and restart firefox, and it is gone...
the profiles directory on MacOSX is in:
~/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/{RANDOM}.default/chrome

In Windows it is in :
C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\RANDOM.default\chorme

Other interesting things I have found tonight:

layout.spellcheckDefault = 2 turns on Firefox 2's spell-checking in input fields as well as textarea.

browser.urlbar.hideGoButton=true turns off the Go button at the end of the address bar.
