    Is there anyway to place a refresh toolbar icon on the Safari 4 toolbar? :confused:

    I realize I can type ⌘-r, but I've gotten in the habit of using the mouse to refresh my browser window.

    After a page is loaded, the loading spinner becomes a refresh symbol.

    Right Click

    Right click on the toolbar and you can customize it and add the refresh symbol back. I was missing it too when I started using Safari 4. Check mine out below.

    Hmmm... That is interesting. When I select "Customize Toolbar" in Safari 4 I only see the following options (see screen capture below).

    Notice there is no refresh icon. I'm using Safari Version 4 Public Beta (5528.17).

    Weird

    That's strange. I remember grabbing the refresh icon and dragging it into the tool bar.

    It looks like you've done the Terminal command to change Safari 4 to the Safari 3 appearance, which is what makes this possible... could that be why?

    That's right

    Oh yeah I forgot about that. I made a few mods like putting the tabs back to the Safari 3 default and having the blue progress bar behind the URL etc... use this link below.

    A Safari 4 Refresh Toolbar button

    Thats all great but how can ppl just leave Safari 4 alone, like everything else and just get the refresh button back? sense it's not in the customize toolbar menu? :(

    refresh button

    Looks like they have simply moved it (to a place we aren't looking and which is maybe less helpful).

    Look at the far right end of the address window. I think that's the refresh button.

    Will take me a while to retrain my self to look in the new spot for it.
