In the new version of Firefox, I absolutely cannot find the "Refresh" button, anywhere.

Where is it?

Thanks so much, for your help.

Chosen solution

The refresh button is combined with the stop and go buttons, and is attached to the right hand edge of the location bar (also known as the address bar).

When you type in the location bar the button becomes the Go button, when loading a site it becomes the Stop button, at other times it is the Refresh button.

I have checked all of the locations for the refresh and stop buttons, but I cannot find them, they are not under the toolbars or anywhere on the menu screen. I am now at a loss. I like the look of Firefox 4, but why fix what's not broken?

Re Ff 9... While I can find it (in almost the most useless location in the header), why oh why did they not at least allow THE OPTION of keeping it where the most URLs are in the tabs - the Pinned as App Tab???

Moving my cursor up ~.5" to a static point is far easier than over 17" to a location that can be inconsistent for two reasons (window width and URL & Search Box sizes) is simply inefficient. I don't care at all that it's there - only that it's ONLY THERE with no apparent OPTION in 'Customize' to place it right below all the (densely placed) pinned items.

Are you guys *trying* to get people moving to other browsers? This is a step backward.
