Can I add a reload button close to back/forward buttons in adress bar?

I want the reload button to be close to back/forward button, like it was 
before. The reload button in the end of the page address edit box it too 
small, and far away to click. The back/forward button, the preference 
and reload should aways be together!

Can I do that? How?

What version of Firefox?

In Firefox 57 it will be next to the Back/Forward buttons like it was 
before.

Right-click on the tool bar or menu bar.  Is there a Customize item in
the pull-down menu?  If so, select it.  Then you can move or remove
buttons on the tool bar.  You should also get a Cutomize Toolbar window
that allows you to add buttons.

However, I do not have the latest version of Firefox.  Thus, I am not
sure this Customize menu item is still available.

Oh, I did not say which version because I assumed all newer ones would 
be the same. That is, after some version all would be the same (at least 
the default).

My version is 52.2.0. Can I change it?

Why 52.2.0 and not 56.0, or 52.4.0 which is the current version of the 
extended support release version you are using?

Firefox 57.0 won't be released until next week on Nov. 14th. A 52.5.0 
should also be released the same day.

That image shows exactly what I have, and what I tried to point as my 
problem: the reload button is to the right of the address bar, I want it 
next to the back+forward button, before the address bar. See? And the 
button you show is too small, I would choose it to be a bit bigger.

Further, the about button of my Firefox says "FirefoxESR", I do not know 
why. Extended Support Release? But you said...
/-:

This version is what came installed with the computer I am using right 
now. I do not like to always be in the last version of any software, and 
I cannot do that, or do not have those, in most computers I use.

Because that is what your Linux distribution ships with the operating 
system you are using.

You could try the Classic Theme Restorer extension.

FF52ESR/linux 64-bit...

The 'Toolbar Buttons' extension provides buttons like these.  I'd like 
prettier, but these are OK.  "Customize" allows you to move them pretty 
much anywhere you want.

Right-click the tab bar and choose Customize.  Move the buttons where 
you want them.

Nice idea! I would have tried that. After your post, I tried it again 
and discovered: the "Customize" button does not appear when we click in 
a few places, including the back and forward buttons! Silly Firefox... I 
clicked in the main menu and the customize was there.

But I cannot move or remove the back, forward and reload buttons. They 
are all together with the the address bar, in a single silly caged thing!
 >:(

I will try the other solutions people said here.

No, it does not work. The back, forward and reload buttons are in a 
closed cage together with the address field. Silly Firefox...

And I cannot click on the tab bar for that menu - not in any tab, and my 
window is full of them. But the option is there somewhere! The "+" tab 
button is a better reference for the tab bar. Some of the address bar 
buttons have the same customize option. And the main menu, if shown 
(like I prefer), has it too.

Google sucks. I opened it, but I cannot see the image in that page. May 
you put it in imgbox.com or any other service that will allow direct 
links to the image file, if you want?

I love imgbox, and I usually will not use its direct image link feature, 
just to support it.

With the latest beta version, every button can be placed wherever you wish 
using 'customize'. I just placed the back button in the middle of the bar 
and the home at the right side with no problem. No idea how far back this 
feature goes but IIRC it goes back at least a few versions.

Much better, and it opens in a fraction of a second! (: And now I keep 
it in my email too, permanently, although it should not disappear from 
imgbox so fast.

In that screenshot, you show the reload button, among others weird 
positioned things, to the right of the main menu!

I just installed the "Toolbar buttons" extension, that you mentioned. It 
did not need to restart Firefox! The reload you showed, which is not in 
the right end of the address field, is the "reload without passing the 
cache"? I cannot find the normal (and bigger would be good too) reload 
button to put in other places after I click on the "custom..." menu - 
the button you showed. Do I have to install the "older buttons" (or 
something) extension first? I am lost now.

Just one more comment for you about imgbox. I created an account there, 
just my email was needed, and it gave me very nice features: have images 
in galeries where I can put related images together, and also control 
wether I want comments in each image or not. I have a gallery just for 
screenshots! And if I remember right, I can receive emails when people 
comment on my images (which is just something I never needed, as the 
images were published in fora).

Thank you very much for sharing this fact! I will not use the latest 
beta, but eventually I will be able to "fix" that problem. I just hope 
it will not take long - with the help others are giving in other 
branches of this discussion.

The 'customize' thing in the 'hamburger' menu (three horizontal lines) 
lets you put most stuff where you want it, as well as adding additional 
toolbars if necessary.  The spaces and spacers make things tidy... 
sometimes.

I don't know, I've never seen that phrase.  I'm running linux;  stuff is 
just DIFFERENT sometimes in windows, even though it's not supposed to be.

Again, I don't know.  It's been a long time since I installed this. 
Trial and error is always painful, but at least with extensions it 
doesn't cost actual money.  You can choose regular or small buttons, but 
I saw no 'large' option.

Very handy and fast.  Maybe I'll open an account -- that would probably 
make it easier to delete photos of only ephemeral interest, which seems 
only polite.

"Hamburguer"... funny way to name it. I know that menu or tab or thing, 
but the reload button I wanted does not appear there. And neither in the 
button list of options to add in it - even after adding the "toolbar 
buttons" extension, which added a lot of buttons that were not there (as 
options to add) before.

I am using Linux too! Now it is a Debian 9, Firefox ESR 52.2.0.

The "force reload" button I mentioned (which is in the left of the 
address bar now) looks like this:

http://imgbox.com/FZgptIMo

Note that I merged part of a second screenshot just to show the hint of 
the button. It is in Portuguese, but it means: "reload page without 
using cache content saved by the browser".

The "large" I meant was relative. It is just because the reload button 
in the right of the address bar it smaller than it was before.

You mentioned something I had even forgotten: the choice of big or small 
buttons. Where is it? Do you have it now?

Good. It is indeed polite. (: With an account, they probably will not 
remove any image unless you ask to. I do not use there much, but it has 
been like 2 years since I created an account there.

It's down at the bottom of the 'buttons' thing -- the page with all the 
buttons.  You can also choose text, icon, or both.
