    I checked out the CSS Inspector and I like it!

    Windows only - the forward button is now hidden until you navigate back


    Smart change.

    The first thing I reverted when I downloaded the nightly last month. No thanks.

    You... like the button being there when it has no function?

    Why can't the forward button be a submenu of the back button? Then it would never waste that space. Heck, make'm all submenu's of the back button.

    There is already a submenu (right click there and see).

    Making submenu the only way means 1 extra click and possible some extra time to figure out where is the destination.

    Yes, but that is a history. You could put a divider above that and then place forward, refresh, and home there. Make it available to customize so I can choose to do that but you may not.

    Is it optional to revert, or did you do it about:config? Personally, I'm with you on this one. I'm not too keen on the UI jiggling about.

    Good question, my profile seems to have awesomely reset itself. Guess I'll update to 11 and try figure it out again. I thought I did it in the toolbar customization but I can't see it right now.

    edit: Now I remember. If you move a button such as the home/refresh/cancel/etc buttons next to the back/forwards button it permanently shows.

    Using it. I'm happy.

    As far as cosmetics go, I don't see much of that since I've customized it so heavily that even mamma fox will not recognize it as hers.

    (No, Daveski, it isn't your StarTrek theme. I don't use other themes.)

    The disappearing forward button isn't irritating then?

    Oddly, KaiRo's LCARS theme, which he originally wrote for SeaMonkey, before it was coded for Firefox, won't display extension/add-on icons that have been dragged to the menu bar on SM. I have to do this with many of them now as there is no 'add-on' bar for SeaMonkey. Cat Thief's beautiful 'Mostly Crystal' & KaiRo's cool Early Blue are fine however. Early Blue looks really good on my notebook. :cool:

    I use 'Stylish' to improve certain sites, which with SeaMonkey is really useful as it has no 'reader' extensions any more, but that is about my limit with it.

    OK, thanks. I'll try & remember that when it's released. I usually move the 'Home' button to be right next to the left of the runbar, with 'Reload' & 'History' consecutively to the left anyway.

    I had "disappeared" the forward/back button a long time ago. The only things I have are, from left to right, the address bar with the bookmark star, tabs, the new tab button, the home button, and the Stylish extension button. Just to be clear, they're all on one row.

    OK, that sounds very 'Zen'. :D

    What complements that approach? Hotkeys or mouse gestures? Or both? Or none/others?

    Sometimes I have weird impulses to make things that way, lol. Impulses that I still control easily.
