Re-add the the ability to stop page load.
not in the design spec.
don't listen to dougt
Sorry, who? When a page is loading, let's have a button at the end of the titlebar (i.e. where we put it in previous versions). The difference is that we won't replace it with refresh in the new one. When you need stop, it's pretty useful to have to have it available immediately.

If its the latter, I think it would be better for it to turn into a refresh button. For the former I wonder how that transition will look.
Created attachment 571325 [details] URL bar states Hi everyone, here's a mock of all the various URL bar states that should clarify some of these interaction questions. With regard to the Stop button, it only appears when the page is loading, and then goes away once loading has finished.

Created attachment 575029 [details] [diff] [review] Patch This patch adds the stop functionality. I am not sure if I should send the event directly from BrowserToolbar. I tried to be consistent in call GeckoApp from BrowserToolbar, which inturn calls Tab's stop(). We need high resolution assets for stop button.
