Why do the toolbars not match my customization when I click "Done" customizing?

I right click on the toolbars and get "Customize" which pops-up the standard customize window where I drag and drop to the actual toolbar. Despite arranging the items in a manner I want to view them and click "Done" SOME of the items disappear or get "magically" merged with other items. In example: the reload button when placed immediately to the right of the location bar gets "merged" into the location bar where it becomes too close to other UI elements and I click the wrong item.

Now for the reload button I can add in the vertical spacer so that it doesn't get merged, but the stop button ALWAYS disappears when placed next to the reload button on the right side of the location bar. When I move it next to the HOME, BACK, and Next buttons on the left of the location bar it does not get merged.

If this is the intent it would sure be better in my mind to give me a "lock" layout checkbox so that the buttons stay fixed in my layout instead of what some UI designer thinks is better for me...

Chosen solution

The merge is done via some CSS code if the buttons are next to each other in the Reload - Stop order.

  • Set the order to "Reload - Stop" to get a combined "Reload/Stop" button.
  • Set the order to "Stop - Reload" or separate them otherwise (Space or Separator) to get two distinct buttons.

Try putting the stop button first, with the reload button to the right. That should allow you to see both buttons at once and adjacent to each other without needing any separator.

The merged buttons were presumably designed as such because you may only use one function at a time. The stop button shows as a page loads, once it has loaded the reload button becomes available, so it is a space saving feature.
