Netscape 4.7: shop 'til you stop

In any case, the original question is still useful.  I've often found
myself without a STOP button because I've narrowed the window so that
I can have more than just a browser on the screen. It would be useful
to  know  how to put the most useful buttons on the left, so they can
still be used with a narrow window.  What is "useful" is, of  course,
different  for different people.  Does Netscape have any known way of
controlling such things?

It'd also be useful if  the  font  size  for  the  buttons  could  be
changed.   I keep finding myself with a small font size for text, but
with huge buttons that can't all be seen unless you give the  browser
the  full  screen.   I'd guess that somewhere in all the config stuff
hidden in $HOME/.netscape, there's a way to give a button font  size,
but guessing about such things doesn'd do you much good. Accidentally
stumbling across the exact spelling of the resource name  could  take
longer than the projected lifetime of the solar system ...
