Two noticeable improvements we like: when you right-click on a tab and select "Pin as App Tab," the site's title heading on the tab will be removed and leave only its favicon. This is great for compacting the tab bar when you have several tabs open.
The overall Add-ons Manager page, which opens in its own tab, is very eye-friendly and easy to click through to find and add new Add-ons, and to maintain the Add-ons and media plug-ins installed on your browser. Browser themes can also be changed here easily.
However, we are not so fond of the placement of the orange "Firefox" pull-down bar. It's set to the upper-left but all the space to its right, running along the top of the browser, is wasted. Why aren't the tabs placed here?
Fortunately, somebody already recognized this design flaw and created a theme, AvantGarde, which moves the tabs to the right of the "Firefox" bar.
, we suggest setting the toolbar icons to "Use Small Icons." This way, you'll maximize the available screen space in the browser window -- making it the same as Chrome's.
