On the latest nightlies a little x button "Close Add-on Toolbar"
appeared. It makes no sense at all, why arent there close buttons for
address bar and menu bar then?.

//

Tried right-clicking -> Customize and then dragging it off, but it
didn't work. How can I delete it? Thanks!

I can see the justification, a lot of people end up with rows and rows
of unwanted toolbars (mostly from not paying attention to checkboxes
installing other crapware) and most users don't have a clue how to turn
it off.

Users don't know to right click, and don't want to wander through
options, they want to click and make it better.

Fingers crossed that there is a way.

Add this script to your userChrome.css:

#addonbar-closebutton {display:none}


If you don't know what a userChrome.css file is, just tell us, and we'll
walk you through it.

It worked flawlessly. It will work as long as I don't change profiles,
am I right? It doesn't really matter if I update, etc.. I guess.
Thanks

A little question. Using the same method I guess we can move parts of
the UI around, where can I find how is each element called? (what is
the name of the "loading" spinner for example? so I can move it to the
right =D)

It's available in the Customize menu, as Activity Indicator.

But what's it's DOM name, or however it's called. How can I align it
to the right?

With the Customize window open, drag it wherever you want. I don't use
it, but just tried, and had no problem moving it around.

Well, no, that didn't work for me. Had to add a "Flexible space", that
did it.
