STOP/RELOAD Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I was practically forced to update to this version of Google, and you have taken away the STOP/RELOAD button. I happened to have liked that feature on my toolbar, it was a great convenience and helped. So far this updated version isn't all that great!

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Since the functionality has been integrated into the browser, this extension is no longer necessary if you're running Firefox 4+.

Beginning with Firefox 4, the Go, Reload, and Stop buttons were merged into a single dynamic button at the end of the Location Bar. This placement is not mandatory, though. By using the toolbar customization dialog, the buttons can be dragged out onto the toolbar and moved wherever you want them.

If the buttons are adjacent, and their order on the toolbar is Reload / Stop, they're automatically merged into a single button -- which is what the Smart Stop/Reload extension does.

If you want individual buttons, simply reorder the buttons as Stop / Reload, or if you want them arranged as Reload / Stop, put a flexible space between them. Since the Location Bar flexes to take up available width, this will collapse the flex space between the buttons and they'll appear normally adjacent.

After using the default combined Stop+Reload button for a time, it struck me as lost in the clutter at the end of the address bar, demoted in status, reduced in size, graphically bland, and hard to see.

So, I went back to using Smart Stop/Reload, simply by modifying the "max version" in the install.rdf file to 10.*.* and I am relieved to see the old button(s) back in all its former 3-D glory, restored to its rightful status, where it's easy to see and easy to use.

In an ideal world it would be nice if Smart Stop/Reload could be kept going, but if it not, then this little bodge is an easy way to extend its life for as long as it works, at least in the short term, if not forever.

It was great when I needed it, but I don't think you need it anymore man. Firefox Nightly 10.01a already has this feature if I'm not mistaken. Either that or another add-on of my is already doing it.

The only add-ons that I have that may effect the that could be Simplify Awesome Bar or FooBar add-ons.

Further Update Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have updated the modified file so it will now work up to Firefox 10 (some time then!).

Get it at h**p:// (copy & paste then replace ** with tt)

Sweet! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks Stevejay and MAxmula_Italy for the work arounds.

For those of us that are really thick in the head, I got this to run by copying and pasting Stevejay's link (and replacing the asterisks with "tt"). Then, just open the folder where that file was downloaded to. Have Firefox up and running, drag the file from the folder onto Firefox. Release the mouse button and Firefox takes over.

"It does exactly what it says on the tin" (English joke, sorry!)

@ steviejay: ...and you are a star for making that modified version that also works with FF3.6 - thank you very much!

Nothing happening Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I installed it on 3.6 and absolutely nothing happened. 4 comes with a combined button but I dumped 4. If this was working it would be a good idea though.

I'll add my voice to those asking for a FF 4 version. This is a great little addon! I've used it for years.

While waiting for an official Firefox 4 version, you can make it compatible by changing MaxVersion. Just take a look to ;-)

Hope you Update it to 4.0.

Why waste space on two buttons when they'll never both be active at the same time? This add-on is a no-brainer. I hope it is updated for Firefox 4 (not sure if it'll be necessary).

I couldn't find it anywhere. It wasn't lurking in another toolbar, and it didn't appear in the popup of icons you get when you customize. I tried disabling/re-enabling ... nothing.

Finally I found the answer: I gave up and decided that I might as well at least put the old Stop and Reload buttons back on the main toolbar (since I apparently couldn't use the Stop/Reload addon anymore) ... and the moment I did so, and clicked Done on the Customize popup, the two buttons magically combined! My addon was restored!

Nice ...perfect have to put the old stop button and reload button back on the navigation bar from the customization bar ...and they magically join together into one!

With this plug-in enabled, my stop/reload buttons disappear every time I restart Firefox. This is a serious problem for obvious reasons.

It must be something with 3.5+ because I've had this plug-in for awhile and have absolutely loved it. But since I upgraded, I've been getting this bug.

works like a charme... using 4.0b6

Not working on 3.6 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I'm sure this addon works well but, it's definitely not working for me as I don't see any sign of it on my browser.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great add on but I noticed that you cant move the button as it still functions while customizing the toolbar - and to make matters worse has now disappeared completely. This add on might not last long in my browser I'm afraid.

EDIT: It seems if you try and drag the newly created button off the toolbar you get an empty space where the button used to be. After a restart of the browser the two stop and reload buttons appeared and I was able to fix this issue

Had to uninstall and reinstall to get to work (also link to homepage was greyed out previously). Otherwise good, maybe an issue with 3.6.10.
