Couldn't be any easier :) Thank you so much! Also just wanted to add that in Customize Toolbar window I switched to Icons and Text to make the Reload and Stop buttons bit larger if anyone needs that. – m0s Mar 24 '11 at 4:05
Note that you can also put the tabs below the location bar again. Right-click the menu bar and uncheck Tabs on top. This (re-)enables features such as double-clicking the tab bar to open a new tab or F6 to get the focus into the location bar. – 0xA3 Mar 24 '11 at 9:14

I'd recommend the Lifehacker article on this. Mine certainly easier to use after implementing some of their tips.
