The Home icon has been moved to the right of the URL/Location/Address bar. You can move/drag it to another location; see below.

A Print icon is provided on the Customize Toolbar window, but is not by default placed on the Toolbar. You can put/drag one there from the Customize Toolbar window; see below.

Helper7677 Many thanks for good info. It's a pity that the new browser auto places the 'home' icon on the far right of the Navigation Bar as this is illogical. Button for 'Forwards' 'Backwards' and 'Home' should be logically together as this is intuitive and would be expected.

You are welcome.

So that other users can find solutions to previously asked Firefox support questions, please take a couple of minutes to return to the forum, sign in and click "Solved" next to my FIRST answer. Thanks.

Home is not a button that I use. Supposedly, the placement was based on research and input regarding how users utilize the buttons. Hmmmmm.
