Matthew hasn't commented on this yet, but I don't think Mozilla is going
to change at this point. It has Back, Forward, Reload and Stop buttons,
in that order.

Ok, back to Nautilus. Currently, the HIG says:

"Similarly, the first few buttons in a browser application should always
include Back, Forward, Stop and Reload, in that order."

Do you agree to change the order to Back, Forward, Reload and Stop (as
used by Nautilus 1.x, Galeon, Mozilla and Konqueror)?

The updates necessary to the HIG is in that paragraph and in the files
images/GaleonToolbar.png and images/GtkToolbar_browserdefault.png,
