The 'Reload" button has been incorporated as part of the address bar. You'll find it at the far right end of the bar. If you want to put it back in the toolbar, you can go to: View > Toolbar > Customize and drag the "Reload" button to the toolbar. If you don't see the icon there, drag the one from the address bar and use that instead.

  1. Firefox 4.0 has a combined Go/Reload/Stop button that is positioned at the far right 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.
    • You can middle-click that button to duplicate the current tab to a new tab.
    • In Firefox 4.0 you can move the Stop/Reload button out of the location bar and put them wherever you want on the toolbar. You can also make them appear as separate buttons on the toolbar.
      • Open the "View > Toolbars > Customize" window to move them out of the location bar.
      • Swap the two buttons or move them to their previous position at the left of the location bar.
      • If the order is "Reload - Stop" to get a combined "Reload/Stop" button.
      • Swap the order to "Stop - Reload" or separate them otherwise to get two distinct buttons.
