Is there a way to change that?

Firefox 3.6 default interface:

Firefox 3.6

Firefox 9.0 default interface:

Firefox 9.0

Getting the 'old look' back:

  • Uncheck the following: Firefox > Options > [ ] Tabs on Top



  • If the Menu Bar is visible, Uncheck the following: View > Toolbars > [ ] Tabs on Top


End result:
