I cannot find replay or reload buttons in the new version of Firefox.

Reload and replay used to be options on drop down menus when I had Firefox and used XP. Now I cannot find those options on any drop down. Please advise.

Re: I cannot find replay or reload buttons in the new version of Firefox.

In Firefox 4 by default the Stop, Go and Reload (Refresh) buttons are combined and attached to the right hand edge of the location bar.

When you are typing in the location bar it will show the Go button. When a site is loading it shows the Stop button. At other times it shows the Reload button.

If you want separate buttons, right-click on a toolbar and choose Customize, you can then drag and drop the stop or reload buttons and place them elsewhere. If you place them in the order "Reload-Stop" on the right hand edge of the location bar they will be combined again. For more details on customizing the toolbar see https://support.mozilla.com/kb/How+to+customize+the+toolbar

Dear Tony E. Pardon my ignorance, but which bar is the location bar? Thanks for the assistance. Robert

Its also known as the address bar, it is where you type in web addresses.

Thanks. You mean the CURVED arrow. Funny how I never clicked on it when I was looking.

Re: I cannot find replay or reload buttons in the new version of Firefox.

Um, yeah. Your directions dont work. I want my refresh icon back. I go to the customize and I wind up grabbing a group of icons I DONT want and they dont work. C'mon people- you didn't think users wouldn't want their refresh icons? Especially since some games won't respond to the F5 key to refresh a page. (those dang FB games lock up all the time!) Look - I'm an old fart and there are some things I like kept in place. Would you fix this please?

You can get them to remain separate in "RELOAD-STOP" order by placing a separator between the two. This is yet another example of piss-poor-programming-thought-process that went into FF4.

Thank you, that made it easy for non geeks.
