Well, yes you can!-)
Although it is a bit contrived to do: right-click on the home button (or
its toolbar) select 'Customize', cut&drop the home button from its toolbar
into the 'Customize' panel then select the home icon where it landed in
that 'Customize' panel window and drop it in the toolbar at the very place
you want it to be seen, et voilà :-)

a correct userland workaround, nothing against it but, at least that time,
you still have the choice :-)

Well, that's the reason why I tend to use FFox for web 2.0 and favor
Seamonkey for real applications (work and banking for instance)
I've never ever met a site that at one moment didn't require another
browser than the one you were used to run ;D)
And, having been a code maker and a webmaster/conceptor at some early days
long ago I usually tend to blame the site webmaster/conceptor first and the
dev men right after, on the Web 2.0 there was a tremendous stormtrooping
of really bad, clumsy, unwitted web conceptors while on the dev side
it takes a longer time to replace a good team with a pail of dunces.
(I reckon that reading some C groups might give the willies and
deep vertigo to a frail mind and yes we can tremble for the time
they'll take some room and spread their nontools but until then...)

yup, K teams seem to have been hit by a tiny wave of these new kids
who have some dire urge to replace actual tools by shiny nickel-goldy
plated toys, they'll either make progress and calm down or disappear in
the scroogeeworld. Meanwhile make use of the tools that work, like

I don't think so, the only lesser difference I've seen would be
that there's no 'global on all mailboxes' search but that's not a
big problem in most cases. Now, I admit that's now quite a time
since I ditched Kmail so I may mis-remember, what are the weakness

that's the Story of human peace of mind, well, and the story of my
piece of mind.

agreed, mostly agreed :-)

I hope not, they should react and kick the bottom fairly soon now,
well, I hope so :D)
