A combined Stop/Reload button for Firefox 2.0

Firefox 2I can't stand 'desktop clutter' and my Firefox toolbar is one such place that I try to keep as minimalistic as possible. I often wondered why there was a 'Stop' and a 'Reload' button when only one of them is active at a time.

I've been using Firefox for quite some time and found an extension called Stop-or-Reload Button that merged the two buttons together therefore reducing the screen real-estate that the navigation toolbar took up.

I upgraded to Firefox 2.0 this week and found that the extension was disabled as it wasn't compatible. After a little searching on the web I found an old but still valid blog post by Erik Arvidsson entitled "Stop-Reload-Button in Firefox" that not only solves my problem but does so in a very minimalistic way! Ignore his references to IE7 he really means Firefox (he mentions this in the comments).

Now I need to try and get rid of those annoying "GO" buttons from the Address and Search bars...
