You can change the value of browser.tabs.closeButtons in about:config to go back to the single close button at the right of the tab bar. The values are

0 - close button on the active tab only. 1 - close button on all tabs (default) 2 - no close buttons 3 - single close button at the right of the tab bar.

You'll probably want to set browser.urlbar.hideGoButton as well to get rid of the useless "go" button and add something like

.tabs-alltabs-button { display: none !important; }

to userChrome.css to get rid of the tab list button so you don't keep hitting it when trying to close tabs.

These changes fix most of the worst mistakes in the 2.0 tab interface and make it as usable as 1.x
