Here is a small tweak to make your firefox look like Google Chrome.

(click on the image for larger view)

Firstly, open your firefox,
-> Goto HELP > Troubleshooting Information > Click on "Open Containing Folder".
-> Close the firefox for now.
-> In the opened folder, go inside the Chrome folder.
-> Here create a new file - "userChrome.css".
-> Copy the following code inside this file

********userChrome.css START *********

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* set default namespace to XUL */

@media all and (-moz-windows-compositor) {

/* This set of declarations moves the menubuttonover over to the right. */

#main-window[sizemode="maximized"][tabsontop="true"] > #appmenu-button-container { position: fixed !important; right: 5em !important; }

#main-window[sizemode="normal"][tabsontop="true"] > #appmenu-button-container { position: fixed !important; right: 4.5em !important; padding-top: 0em; }

/* This makes the menubutton transparent, and adjusts the size of the button. */

/* #appmenu-button{ padding: 0px 0px !important; margin-top:3px !important; background-color: rgba(54, 121, 166, 0.2) !important; } */

/* This set of declarations adjusts the tab bar. It makes the tab bar flush against the scren when maximized, for Fitt's law purposes. */

#main-window[sizemode="normal"][tabsontop="true"]  > #navigator-toolbox[tabsontop="true"] > #TabsToolbar { padding-left: 0px !important; padding-top:1em !important; padding-right:13em !important; }

/* This lets the tabs themselves get itsy bitsy before invoking FF's scrolling tab bar. */

.tabbrowser-tab:not([pinned]) { max-width: 250px !important; min-width: 20px !important; }

/* These declarations replace the menubutton with an icon, and style it appropriately. */

Change the value to " :minimize,maximize,close "
