New windows install and I am used to it being on the left. Being fairly inept I have found no way to accomplish this, Can someone help?

Oh yeah, the brilliant configuration of this board does not allow me to search using the terms "new tab button". Try it and see if it's only me

Have you tried using the Customize feature for the user interface?

Yes, I have... I do not see any options there. If I am missing one, please point it out to me.

Solution: opening "Customize" I clicked on "Restore Defaults". Like magic the plus sign appeared as an option to drag back to the main group of options and once there drag it to whee I wanted it. Funny, because this was a new install of Firefox

The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words: button tab new.
You must specify at least one word to search for. Each word must consist of at least 3 characters and must not contain more than 14 characters excluding wildcards.
