Two Firefox Tricks - Remove close button on tabs and remove scrolling on tab

Firefox-tricks

These two tips will allow you to Remove the close button on the tabs (can remove or move to the right most ) and to remove the scrolling of the tabs (arrows on the tab bar). Currently am using the 64 bit version of the Firefox named Minefield (4.0 beta 2) and these two tips works fine on them too. (it will work from version 2 onwards).
