Firefox 11

I was a long-term holdout on 3.6.x and finally made the jump. I've found enough add-ons & plug-ins to make 11 look as close to 3.6.x as reasonably possible, but with one singular (and grating) exception:

Does anyone know how to recreate the Tab Mix Plus behavior where I could get a New Tab button on the far left side of the Tab Bar? Yes, I know I can double-click or middle-click, but I want my New Tab button in the exact same spot it's been for years.

ctrl + t

I know it's not the answer you wanted, but you've been using Firefox wrong.

you can still do it capt'ned. I just tried it out myself on FF11.

1. First download this add-on: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... ar-button/

2. Then right-click on the tab bar in the empty area (not a tab or the + button, but next to it), click on Customize.

3. Drag "New Tab" button to the left of the browser bar, and whalla. done.

Here's some other "classic look" mods if you haven't ran across them yet: http://www.ironspider.ca/browsers/setupfirefox.htm

Thanks millions. Firefox now looks "right". Even have a version of Qute for FF11.
