1. You can't set the icons to "text only" like you can in NS 4.X (not really a Classic quibble directly, but I don't want icons wasting my screen estate !).

2. Where's the "Home" icon - it should be "inline" with the Back/Forward/Reload/Stop icons. Yes, I know it's in the Personal Toolbar (I have that switched off, cos it's useless) and in the Go -> Home menu (never use that) and it's CTRL-H (never use that) - if Classic is supposed to be 4.X clone, please put the home icon back where it should be !

3. The "Search" button is annoying as heck and takes up far too much screen estate - it *doesn't* search on the current page - it takes you to the Netcenter Search which I don't want. Much better would be to drop the Search button (relegate it to a pull-down menu) and put back the early 4.X "Find" button (find text on page), which was 100 times more useful.
