When a page is in the process of loading, the user does not need a reload button, and when a page has finished loading, the user does not need a stop button, so why have both visible? I think that Mozilla should take a clue from the Opera browser, and remove this UI redundancy.
mpt aint gona like this, but confirming anyway for review. The problem with this is that users aren't going to get that the button changes. A button must do 1 and only 1 thing. If it changes or goes away, they wont get which action it will do and end up distrusting the button and the rest of the product. What would happen if your pencil had the point end when you started writing and had no eraser and then the eraser came when you started to write with the point being hidden when you stopped writing?

See bug 21623 Stop (sometimes!) stops animations as well as page loading, which is another reason not to merge the buttons.
Stopping rapid flashing animations is a must. Please WONTFIX this.
