In Snow Leopard you could right click an application toolbar icon and select "Remove item", this is no longer possible in Lion. If I select "Customize toolbar" I get the customization panel, but it's not possible to do any changes.

Anyone know if this is a bug or intentional?

Any way around it?

⌘CMD-drag to get the item out of the toolbar.

Have you tried, when in Customize Toolbar, to drag the items out of the actual toolbar? It works for me in Safari.
