Description

The View menu contains Stop and Reload.
The Go menu contains Back, Forward and Home.

It makes no sense for the navigational commands to be scattered about in
separate menus.

That makes sense.  (Also, technically given the resolution to bug 89350, Home
should be removed from Go and put into Bookmarks - but that's a different matter.)

Comment 2

ooh, Go>Stop. Start>Shutdown it has a nice and foolish ring to it.
... no!

stop and reload affect the page you are viewing, they aren't really navigational
actions.

Guess we gotta rename the Navigation Toolbar then.

...and re-open bug 89350. (Whee!)  Not that I *personally* care about that one
any more since I've discovered how to turn the throbber into a Home button.

But - this is ridiculous.  Let's be consistent.  Is the "Navigation Toolbar"
meant for navigation only (in which case Print and possibly Search should both
be removed) or is it meant for things that "affect the page you are viewing" in
which case it should be renamed (as per comment 3) and a bunch of other things
(like a Home button) could possibly be added.

The same hold true for the menus.  Also, if you don't like "Go->Stop" then you
could easily rename "Go" to "Navigation".

What Timeless said. Stop and Reload are not navigation commands; they do not Go 
anywhere. They affect the View of the current page. And yes, `Navigation 
Toolbar' has always been a silly name for the Toolbar.

If stop belongs in the view menu, then the stop button should either blank the
current view, or close the current view, and should never be greyed out.

Browser go and stop are both navigational counterparts/opposites, just like when
driving your car. You'll never get the opportunity to stop without having first
selected some form of go.

Verified. Anyone want to open a bug on renaming the toolbar?
