Toolbars not very adjustable

    In IE6, I had the menu, my buttons, and the URL field all on one line,
    leaving me nearly an inch more room than IE7 does. It won't let me put my
    buttons on the same line as the menu. I have a stupid, useless Google seach
    field at the top. Google's already my home page, I don't use that field.
    I'd like to shrink the spot for my URL, then move the buttons and the menu
    onto that line. It's extremely irritating that IE6 allowed this and IE7
    doesn't. Why do they think they know everything they want.

    Is there any way around this annoyance? I'm fixing to switch to Firefox,
    which I never used because I never liked tabbed browsing. (I'm trying it,
    still seems pointless to me.)

    This is easily adjusted by using a bigger monitor and higher resolution.

  3. Unfortunately there doesn't appear to be one for now. So either step back to
    move foreward, or give Firefox a try. You can return to IE6.x by going to
    Add/Remove in the Control Panel and removing "Windows Internet Explorer 7",
    which I have already done. IE7 has interesting potential; maybe in a year or
    so.

    In FF, you can turn off the TABS.
    Since IE7 was released, I've been using FF more & more.
    Whatever morons decided to sacrifice customability because of their poor
    programming skills needs to be fired.
    If I can't rearrange my toolbars, they better go back to Redmond and clean
    out their desks.
    I hear AOL is hiring, they like bloatware & lack of options.

    The web site below offers a registry fix that will remove IE's search bar,
    however the address bar then expands across the whole screen. I have tried
    to place my favourite icons bar on the same row as the address bar which
    would give a bit more browsing room but I cant. At least the search bar will
    be removed. The address is:

    I couldn't tell whether you were being wry or not. I have a laptop, so
    screen size is not so easily fixed.

    Thanks to y'all for your input. You can turn off tabbed browsing in IE7,
    too. I didn't know you could turn off Firefox's tabs. I'll have to go try
    that.

    Have a great day, y'all.
