on top of the controls, similar to Google Chrome. This is likely

"Firefox 3.7a5pre handles the Add-ons window differently, as it
opens in a new tab rather than a new window. The Add-ons Manager
has also been redesigned and has animations such as "Search"
sliding in the left column when you search. The new Add-ons Manager

"Get Add-ons", "Languages", "Search Engines", "Extensions",
"Themes", and "Plugins". The search box remains, and to update
Add-ons we now click the text link "Update add-ons"."
