After many news organizations getting mixed up it has finally come out.
Daniel: "This tastes like chicken."
Carter: "So what's wrong with it?"
Daniel: "It's macaroni and cheese."

I just installed it and after I restarted FF it did an update and now it's reverted back to 1.5.0.4...

I did notice how they have the X thing on each individual tab now, I kind of liked it better when there was just one in the corner.

 The X thing is an extension that worked with 1.5.0.4. Thought it is kinda cool. There is also a colored tabs extension that's neat also. Liven up a little!! ;)

So it can be disabled?  I don't really like it since I'm used to having just one X, plus it reminds me of IE beta.

The colored tabs thing isn't bad though.  Actually it's really nice now that I'm looking at it.

 I haven't tried the beta yet so I couldn't tell ya. Believe I'll wait for it to come out of beta seeing as it updates itself back to 1.5 anyways.

Probably because of all of the complaints that they're certain to have gotten because of the location of the X's.    ;)
