Moving Button UI Problem

Firefox 10 (released on ) decided to auto-hide the Forward button when there's no forward.

Very annoying. Because, as you navigate among the pages, the movement of these icons is distracting.

there doesn't seem to be a built-in way to disable this auto-hide. A workaround to stop this behavior is to set the icons to small. Right click on a empty area in the tool bar, then choose menu [Customize…]. Then check mark [Use Small Icons].

this workaround doesn't work in Linux for Firefox 18.0.2 (as of ).
