I've tried using the "alt" thing, customizing the toolbar (there's no reload button to add), and resetting all toolbars in safe mode. It's still not visible to me. I also have no "stop" button (to stop a page from loading once it's started). the only button that I can see is the Home button. I can add other things to the toolbar, but not these essential buttons.
The stop/go/reload buttons by default have been combined into one button and will be attached to the right end of the location bar. When you customize the toolbar you should see the reload and stop buttons separated but still to the right of the location bar, you can then move them elsewhere and they will become separate buttons.
Firefox 4.0 has a combined Reload and Stop button that appears at the far right of the location bar.
The first thing I did was look in the customize. Both buttons were shown in the order Reload, Stop.
However they never seem to show up. This is the full release installed as an upgrade.
Putting the spacer in helped show them both. If I reverse them it shows them both. However the combined button approach as is set up by default seems to show neither.
I don't see the combined button in my toolbar. Also "View > Toolbars > Customize" does'nt show either button. What does the button look like ? Thanks.
I had it working per the View - Toolbars - Customize, placing stop and reload to the left of the url window. I also have the plugin 'download helper'. I then did a Restore Default Set, and then tried again to place separate stop and reload buttons...then the reload button disappeared. I could place into various positions while Customizing, but once I hit Done, it would never appear. I tried placing it right, center, left, within a new add-on bar, etc., with separators/flex spaces on either side, etc.
Just now, I finally removed and replaced the Location bar to the extreme right, leaving all buttons (stop, reload, home, bookmarks and download, in that order, to the left of the location bar). For the first time in hours, I again see separate stop and reload. I'm having a hard time seeing this as intentional operation. (sorry for the long post...I used to break code for a living and want to ensure that any problem actually gets fixed).
