Mozilla Firefox 4 Launch Date is March 22

After the much hyped Internet Explorer 9 launch, it's time for the open-source Firefox to get its facelift. Mozilla has decided to launch the stable version of Mozilla Firefox 4 on the 22nd of March. Firefox 4 is a single-process web-browser that runs plugins in separate container processes. It will be up to date with the latest in web standards, including HTML5, will feature a much faster Javascript engine, and will use GPU hardware acceleration to speed up rendering. March 22 is turning out to be quite a day for the tech sphere, with NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 590 graphics accelerator, and EA/Crytek's self-proclaimed blockbuster game release, Crysis 2, also releasing on the same day.

I'm using a plugin that hides them both, and brings up the old menu on pressing alt, but isn't there an option to revert the new FF button to the old menu bar as well?
Yeah, same way you do it in all firefoxes, right click a blank spot and hit customise.

I put navigation buttons, menus and address bar(omni bar) on a single row, so this "new" interface does not interest me. If I maximize I loose a title bar's worth of vertical space, but who maximize browsers these days?
