Can I move the tab bar down to below the address bar?



I just upgraded to FF4, and now the tab bar is right up at the top of the FF window. In my previous version (3.6.something), it was above the web page area, below the address bar.

Can I move it back down? I find it disconcerting to have it so far away from the pages I'm viewing.

Thanks to both of you! Sadly, I can only choose one as the right answer, so I chose the first. Both answers were right on the ball though!
