Anyone else downloaded the latest update which appears to be 'a new faster firefox'? That is as maybe but, and this is probably a dumb question. With my firefox always up until now my open tabs have appeared underneath the bookmarks toolbar. Now it is above everything except the tool bar that says 'file, edit, view etc.

Is there a way of putting it back down underneath? :-| :-S

I also have the update with the changed toolbar and do not like it either :-(

I didn’t like it either at first but I found I got used to the changes very quickly.
