It's different, yes. You can move the home (house) button to the other side if you want to, but it sounds like there are other aspects you don't like either. To downgrade to v3.6.16, please follow these instuctions:

Go to Download Firefox v3.6.16 and download it to the desktop.

Then go to Add/Remove Programs, scroll down to Mozilla Firefox and remove it, choosing to keep your bookmarks, customizations etc., (don't checkmark the box).

Then reboot and delete the folder called Mozilla Firefox at this location: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox

Finally run the installation file you downloaded to the desktop earlier.

Your bookmarks, customizations etc., are maintained in a different location and will become available to you again once you complete the installation.
