Midori Browser – Moving the New Tab button

I am running the Midori browser inside of Cygwin-X at work.  This allows me to browse and download within Cygwin easier, as well as bypass some of the security imposed on the network at work.

One thing I have found that I absolutely hate is the order Midori puts its task buttons in.  The first button on EVERY other browser is Back – Midori uses “New Tab”  – WTF?!  I find myself clicking “New Tab” meaning to go back.  This has got to go!

I found that the easy fix for this is by editing the configuration file.  On Cygwin this file is located in .config/midori/config

Make sure you exit out of Midori, then open the config file in vi.  The line to look for is toolbar-items=.  I moved TabNew from the first entry to the last.  Saved the file and then restarted Midori.
