IE8 suggestions (bugs?)
The file menu bar displays below the address bar. There doesn't appear to be
a way to move it above the address bar. The file menu bar should always be
immediately below the title bar, above all other UI elements.

There's no way to move the command bar to the left of the favorites bar.

Having the Command bar to the right of the favorites bar and locking the
tool bars causes the rightmost item on the favorites bar to disappear and the
expansion icon to appear. There seems to be no way to prevent this.

Hi John,

Customizing the Favorites center button, Favorites bar and Command Bar.
(copied from a post in the IE8 beta NG)

No you can't drag it to the same line as your other third-party toolbars or
the Menu bar. You can drag and move the Favorites Center button, the Command
bar and the Favorites bar to the Tabs line or above the Tabs line. Ensure
you have View>Toolbars>Lock Toolbars unchecked. Grab the 'Gripper' ('|') and
move any of the above toolbars to a new position on the Tabs bar (you will
see the area where you can drag them to outlined with a thin border,
including the tabs line and below your Menu bar and/or third-party
toolbars).

Ensuring you have Lock Toolbars unchecked move your mouse over the IE
toolbar. You will find that there are other elements of the toolbar that you
can customize (the mouse cursor will change to a N/W cursor when you pass
over a customizable element.)

Re: IE8 suggestions (bugs?)
This doesn't address any of these suggestions. You can put the Command Bar
and the Favorites button and Favorites bar on the same line, and also put
them on the same line as the tabs, but there's no way to change the left to
right ordering of the button, bar, tabs, and commands. It is always Favorite
button, then tabs, then Favorrites Bar, then Commands. I want commands on
the left and Favorites on the right. Bars should be reconfigurable in any
ordering and combination, such as in Visual Studio. I also have no desire
for the menu bar to share horizontal space with any of the other bars, simply
to be repositionable above the address bar.

Re: IE8 suggestions (bugs?)

I agree with the op. I can drag the Favorites button to the left of the
Tab bar, but not to the right with the other Command icons. I can't get
rid of the Favorites button at all, which seems kind a stupid. If I
have the File menu bar displayed, why do I need the Favorites button
showing at all?

I can remove the Favorites bar, but once removed, can't do a thing with
the Favorites button.
