Looks nice, but I would not like the small location bar. Since i limit the width of my browser it would still be too small then.
Mine looks quite different. It's basically form follows function.
I love to see the full URL and GET Parameters in the location bar since i care a lot about how web applications work. I don't mind spending some vertical space for that since I'm on 1920x1200.
I use the English version of Firefox, because i hate applications translated to German. Just makes menu entries longer and feels awkward to me.
I put the Bookmarks toolbar to the Right of the Menu and limited it to show only icons. That way i have 1 Click access to my most visited websites.
There's a lot going on in the status bar.
DownloadHelper - I don't really remember using it. It's for downloading flash movies
TextArea Cache - A lifesaving add-on, because it saves backups of what i type, so i can restore them if the browser crashed or i accidently navigated away.
AdBlock - Does just that
Spelling correction, changing automatically between English and German depending on what site i am on
FoxyProxy - Easy Access to Proxy configurations, which comes in handy when analyzing web applications with WebScarab
Greasemonkey - Enables me to write custom scripts to adapt web applications to my liking
Stylish - Lets me modify websites CSS
Torbutton - For Enabling/Disabling Tor
