iPad browser controls stupidly opposite of those on iPhone; fixable?

I want the forward/back controls in my browser on iPad to be at the bottom of the screen, same as they are on my iPhone. I don't see any way to do this in Safari or Chrome. My thumb insists on doing it the iPhone way (and quite logically because that's where my thumb already is while holding the device). It is driving me crazy. Please tell me there's a way.

How did I screw up my Vista toolbar?

I was working on a paper last night, basically half dead, and somehow I managed to change my toolbar. Here is a picture (Click on it for a close up with a helpful paint arrow). Instead of being a row of my windows, it now shows two of the windows open (icon only) with a scroll bar on the right side. I have Vista Home Premium 32. This is a major annoyance because I'm trying to write papers and I have about a billion windows open, so any help received, I'm grateful for.

IE Developer Toolbar keeps going away. How to get it to stay active?

I have the Internet Explorer Developer Toolbar Beta 3 installed in IE7 on Windows XP. When I turn on the toolbar (Tools>Toolbars>Developer Toolbar) is shows up underneath the address bar up top. Sweet. But when I close the browser and reopen it the toolbar is no longer showing again. It just won't stay active. I have to got through the Tools>Toolbars>Developer Toolbar routine every time I want to use it, which is basically anytime I'm in IE since I only use it to test pages. Boo. How do I get it to stay put? A registry tweak perhaps? Mystical incantations? Mefi will know what to do.

Bookmarks toolbar in Opera 9?

Is there anything remotely similar in Opera 9 to Firefox's Bookmarks Toolbar? Opera seems so much faster, but unless I can get quick access to my bookmarks without having to use their annoying "start toolbar" or the Bookmarks menu at teh top, I doubt I'll be able to make the switch.

Weird Google Search Results

Every once in a while, when I search Google, I end up with some weird search results. All ads.

Note that I also get a pop-up window with this page that has a couple other ad links. [more inside]
