Isn't there an optional button in the URL window that basically says to Firefox "Go"? Seems to have disappeared.

I have used such a button for years, until FF urge dme to go to FF17. In doing so FF insisted I reset. Now all kinds of customizations are gone, including that button.

Chosen solution

Firefox 4 and later use a combined Stop/Reload/Go button that is positioned at the right end side of the location bar.

  • During the page load process it shows as a Stop button and after the loading has finished the button is changed to a Reload button.
  • If you type in the location bar then that button becomes a Go button.
  • Middle-click or hold the Ctrl key and left-click the Reload button to duplicate the current tab to a new tab.

thank you

There is not a "go" button in the customize repertoire.

I recall it being somewhere as a checkbox, but where in heck? (I put it up a couple years ago).

Do you not get a green arrow (on far right) when you type in the Location (address) bar?

Actually it is a green check mark, perhaps (?) a feature of the schemme add-on I am using.

The stop button remain a stop button. Maybe I have gremlins or poltergeiste.

Yes, themes or extensions can change the appearance of toolbar buttons.
The default Go button is a right pointing arrow (probably gray on Windows)

That stop button should change to a circular reload button once the page has finished loading.
