Firefox 2.0 has the "x" close tab squares on each tab as opposed to on the right top like the old versions. I find this highly annoying. Do others think so, too?

I hated it too, so I changed it.
If you would rather the close tab button, on the end of the toolbr, like it used to be, I can help you out with that.

Double click the blank space, in the Tab Bar, or right click a tab and select New Tab.
This will open a new, blank Tab.
In the Address Bar, type; about:config
Click Enter.
Scroll down to, and double click, browser.tabs.closeButtons.
This will open the Enter integer value dialog box.
Change the value to one of the 4 Integer Values listed below, depending on your preference.
Click the OK button.
Exit about:config.
Restart Firefox.

Integer Values:
0 - Display a close button on the active tab only
1 - Display a close button on each tab (default)
2 - Don't display any close buttons (if you prefer clicking with the center mouse wheel, to close tabs)
3 - Display a single close button at the end of the tab bar (Firefox 1.x behavior)
