I suggest a change in the way the Navigation Toolbar collapses when tabs are displayed.

Rather than leaving a narrow horizontal bar, Mozilla should add the little 'uncollapse' triangle (widget?) 
to the left-side of the tabs toolbar.

The thin horizontal bar is an irritating waste of screen space which serves *no* purpose other than to 
act as a place-holder for the Navigation Toolbar.

It would also be nice if the Mac build of Mozilla would adhere to the GUI convention for dealing with the 
"hide toolbar" widget (top right hand "button" on all window bars) and not treat the tab area as a 
toolbar and hide it!!! ... though, I suppose this is a separate issue (I left feedback on this once before)

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Collapse Navigation Toolbar when tabs are visible
Actual Results:  
Thin, horizontal place holder was left for the navigation toolbar (as expected by historical behavior in 
Netscape/Mozilla but not by logical GUI design).

Expected Results:  
Added a little triangle to the left of the tab bar to save space and left out the horizontal place holder 
wasting space!!!
