Back & Forward buttons rarely work since yesterdays update.

Posted

Yesterdays upgrade feels like they've rolled out a beta version rather than one thats stable. The back a page button doesnt work, Nor does right click and clicking on the last page viewed. Was very happy before yesterday, firefox is now working like a POS. Shame.

Chosen solution

Are you possibly using a Firefox 60.2.0 ESR version?

  • Help -> About Firefox

If you use Sync then best is to disconnect Sync temporarily during troubleshooting.

You can check for problems with the places.sqlite database (bookmarks and history) in the Firefox profile folder.

  • use "Verify Integrity" on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page
    in case errors are reported close and restart Firefox and retry

See also:

If "Verify Integrity" on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page cannot repair places.sqlite then remove all places.sqlite files in the Firefox profile folder. Firefox will rebuild places.sqlite and restore the bookmarks from a recent JSON backup in the bookmarkbackups folder.

You can use the button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page.

Hello Carthy18,

You say this happens after yesterday's update, but according to your
system details you're running Firefox version 60.0 - are you using the
ESR version  ?

The latest Firefox release version is 62.0 .......

Would you try Safe Mode and see if that will make any difference  ?
