There is hope for Firefox 4

My top two love-to-hate bugs for Firefox 4 look like they might get fixed for final version.

Bug 572160, put tabs in the title bar when the window is maximized.

Bug 455694, implement animation for tab reordering and detaching.

This bug isn’t a blocker, but there is plenty of work being done to fix it. If I’ve understood things correctly, they are also getting rid of the weird, useless miniatures that appear when you drag a Firefox tab.
