This is the behavior I'm talking about. It's coming to Firefox 4, but is there an extension that will give this functionality to 3.6?

I don't think you can have the exact same behavior in FF 3.

But if you want the close button to always be at the same spot, you can use the add-on Close Button:

Adds a Close Tab (or Window, or Browser) button to the toolbar, so you can put it where you want it.


Another useful add-on is Multiple Tab Handler to close multiple tabs with one click.

Also, you can middle click anywhere in a tab to close it. That works in just about everything thing with tabs. (FF, Chrome, notepad ++) I find this just as easy, no need to hit just a small "x", click the tab.

If you are on a laptop clicking both mouse buttons will do the same.
