Back button not working in Responsive Design Mode

When in Responsive Design Mode, when I click the back button (left arrow on top of browser) nothing happens. This happens in any page I visit. I've reinstalled Firefox (and deleted the AppData folders when unninstalled).

This started happening a few hours ago, before it was fine.

I have no idea what is happening...

After further checking I realized that, in about:config, devtools.responsive.browserUI.enabled was set to false.

After changing to true and restarting Firefox, I can now navigate with the back button. Strange thing is that in another computer I have Firefox with this option set to false aswell and the back button works.

You may have seen a post or received a notification regarding support for Firefox or Thunderbird with a link to another site or a phone number being posted. This is a scam and is not a method to receive support from Mozilla. Mozilla does not have telephone or email support. Please do not click on the link and do not interact by calling any phone numbers or email addresses listed. I apologize for any inconvenience caused. You are currently posting on the official Mozilla website and will receive assistance here.
