    Not sure exactly what you mean, but running
    gconf-editor will give you alot of option to configure it. I saw option to change icon sizes and fonts in their one day I think, look in /desktop/gnome/interface/toolbar_style for the text only and no icons if you would just like to get rid of toolbar icons, I belive one of them keys can change icon size aswell. Their are others around their that look like other stuff you want

    I don't know why that isn't the default setting to be honest. It's much more compact and easier to read.

    Last Ubuntu release (Koala) there was a button to the left of the adress bar doing what ctrl-L does. Seems like Lynx took that away.

    Thats no good.

    Re: HOWTO: Restore Nautilus Address or Location Bar

    Any idea where one should suggest bringing the option back. It's a rather annoying change and having to go to gconf to change it seems like complicating things too much for the average user. Why change something that was simple and functional?

    There was a button with a pencil icon you can just click to activate this permanently. wasn't wasting any space or hurting anyone and now it's gone. It's just a silly as removing the button from the media menu which allowed you to stop usb drives from auto mounting. required when you wanted to format a usb drive in gparted. not so much anymore but still loads of times i want to manually mount my usb disks.

    having the location bar always on should be the default, instantly type which folder you want or smb/ftp/scp:// to any network location. it's brilliant.

    now for both you have to you gnome "regedit"??? how is that easier for the less experienced?

    Also in lucid the option under the behaviour tab was removed. so you have to use gconf-editor.
