I would like to make Firefox fit more to the Ubuntu default themes Ambiance and Radiance. Therefore I would like to place the tab close buttons on the left instead of the right of each tab.

I found this tutorial, but it seems to be only for Firefox 4. Is there any way of doing that for Firefox 3.6?

I just middle click each tab to close it. – AttackingHobo Dec 24 '10 at 19:43
