Just to make me (more) crazy, the good folks at Microsoft decided to move the Refresh and Stop to right of the address bar in IE8. Most other browsers place them to the left, as did previous versions of IE.
You can move the Refresh and Stop buttons to the "correct place" by doing this:
- Right-click on an empty area in the toolbars
- Select --> Customize
- Select --> Show Stop and Refresh Buttons before Address Bar
Now the Stop and Refresh buttons back to their normal location.
