    The best practice is to disable the tool bar buttons, since as you see there is not a lot of control to them.

    Then put buttons in your form and label them whatever you want, submit, save, update whatever.  Then you can use rules to do the submit functions you need. And also use conditional formatting based on the state of the form to hide buttons or show buttons that you want the user to see or have access to.
