Unfortunately, it didn't come out on the day it was scheduled.  But if 
that means they got a few more bugs fixed, I won't complain. =:^)

I don't know how your toolbars are configured (and long since forgot 
whatever the default might be), but here, I simply added it to the right 
of the location bar/box on the location toolbar.  If that's on its own 
line or to the right on a shared line, since the location box expands 
horizontally to take any available free space, with the throbber as the 
last thing on that toolbar, it's to the far right as it's configured to be 
by default on most browsers.
