Customizing my interface was just what I needed. I love FF even more now.

Ah Firefox, always ahead of the curb, always the best and brightest browser. Chrome tried, but failed. Sorry Google.

I wonder if MaximumPC.com tracks users browsing...

Smart Keywords, huh?  I hope it will still pull Keywords from your bookmarks, since this feature has been around for a while with Keyword Search.  It's nice to install a fresh copy of Firefox on any machine, install Xmarks, sync, and be right back where I was, keywords intact, without having to re-set yet one more thing every time I do a clean install or use a new computer.

Regarding tip 8, the Find As You Type box, back in FF 3 I think it was they gutted it from being a full search bar and just a measly text field instead. You'll almost certainly want the FAYT addon (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/fayt/) to make it a real search dialog again without taking up any extra space on the screen.

Soo Sync is the replacement for Xmarks??

Xmarks isn't gone.  LastPass bought it and kept it alive.

If you use browsers other than Firefox (like I do), then Xmarks still can't be replaced by Firefox Sync.  Maybe if Chrome starts supporting it, I'll switch, but Xmarks is still working just fine across both browsers right now :-)

thx I was asking cause I use xmarks now and only use firefox, tried chrome but features I've come to love in FF wasnt there. I love the remote tab feature on xmarks too. those pages I visted while at work that I would like to open while home. So i guess I'll give Sync a try
