New to FireFox....

I am new to FireFox and I am trying to customize the browser. Is there a way to get rid of the Google address bar to the right of the regular address bar?

Also, I want to put the address bar along with the back, forward, home, etc.., buttons in the space that has the File, Edit, View, Go, Bookmarks, etc., in order to free up viewing space. I like to have as much free viewing space in the browser as possible. I know in IE, you can just drag the buttons to where ever you want and then lock the bar.

I would appreciate any help given! Thanks.

What exactly is this:

*********************************
//switch to enable caching of objects served over a secure connection
//WARNING: This could be a potential security issue because SSL pages can contain personal information
//that you might not want floating around on your
PC.

//user_pref("browser.cache.disk_cache_ssl", true);
*********************************

How could this harm my computer? Should it be true or false in order for my computer to be secure?
