Webbrowser buttonlayout interferes with Unity Launcher

Bug Description

When I try to click on the previous page button in Firefox to often it makes the launcher to show up and I have to wait until it hides before I can reach the < button again.

Possible solutions: Change buttons layout. Put the adress bar on the far left and place the previous and next page button between the adressbar and the Google search bar.

Yes, I think that's useful. Let's put the Home button far left, then the
< > arrows, and make this consistent between Chromium and Firefox.

The Home button is used less often then the <> buttons so I support this possible solution.
Sorry to say I do not have the knowledge to submit patches :-(
