You're definitely right about the extra clitter. Firefox is about customisation, then I want my small icons to be well defined and clear, and i don't want to have a stupid button when I don't need one. That's why the old search box was brilliant, it's just that, a search box. Not made a big deal of. This could have been easily expanded with a more flexible minimalist approach.
It's outrageous if they will not allow me to change things to how I want them to be. I don't have a problem with the close in the tabs that's nice, if the Firefox designers were talking about having to cut out any extra things whatsoever, as a necessity of the design philosophy why detract on this.
I also think that bringing in a design team was a bad idea, this is a community project. Just because you have money, don't use it on such things when the community comes up with many better designs. I say bring back Arvid (of Qute) fame to produce a visual refresh.
