I often use the little links that Google apps display at the header of the page to switch between gMail, Calendar, Reader, Documents, etc.

However, when I go to Google Reader, I can't easily get back to gMail: It's not listed at all, unless I select More/Even More from the menu. Obviously I can just use a bookmark, but it seems very odd.

Is there a way I can change or customize what links are shown in each Google app?

It's first choice in mine version. But what is this Custom there? –  Lipis Aug 24 '10 at 11:17
    
Does your browser support tabs? It's so much easier to leave them both open. –  William Aug 24 '10 at 13:36

You also seem to have 'Web' there twice. Which browser are you using, and do you have any greasemonkey scripts or plugins which may be breaking the links? –  Mike Houston Aug 24 '10 at 16:37

Kudos to Lipis for a nudge in the right direction:

Turns out the problem was the Firefox "Custom Google search" extension, V1.1.2 - Disabling this fixed the problem.

I solved that particular problem by using the Faviconize and Perma Tab extensions for Firefox. Now I have small, permanent tabs in my browser for Gmail, Reader, Calendar, and Voice. No need to use the Google-provided links.
