The think I'd like is a home button next to the Back/Forward/Reload/Stop buttons. I like to have Mozilla with *minimal* chrome (so no sidebar as default please - it's an utter waste of space !) and I'd switch off the personal toolbar and the very bottom toolbar (the one below the status line). These should be defaults - space is ultra-critical for most users: I'd like text-only alternatives for the Back/Forward/Reload/Stop too (the Reload graphic, in particular, is *not* obvious to me - it could mean back or home !).

Don't want the "Search" button at all - another space-waster. It seems to me that the default chrome leaves you with only about 60% of the window area for browsing, which is poor IMHO. Yes, we *can* tweak all the options, but not all the users are going to bother doing that - witness the number of people who didn't know how to get rid of the sidebar for example !
