Please Make Address bar placeable to the one half of the Tab header on Firefox. This could enlarge the browser.

Yes please, merge the tab bar and address bar in to one, similar to macOS Safari "compact view.


This is mockup of the idea on imgur:

Making moves

@jimjams91this is much in line with IE9 - IE11. But it eats a lot of space that is now used for displaying tabs.

As such i would prefer an approach more in line with the Min browser ( ) or the most recent safari version (only available upon manual activation).

As a compact mode, Firefox would look like this:


Now, where do you put URL or make a search?
Well, when you Double Click a tab or press Ctrl+L it would focus and show the URL bar (Esc or Enter gets you back to tabs):

But this should always be a "compact mode", and not the default GUI.
