I am still seeing the back and forrword buttons, but not the little arrow that opens the dropdown menu allowing you to go back multible pages in 1 click.

Chosen solution

That button is removed in Firefox 4.0 and you can right click either Back or Forward button to open the history list of the current tab.
You can do the same in current Firefox 3 versions, so it was decided that the extra arrow button was no longer needed and only takes up space on the toolbar.

{Ctrl + Left-arrow} still works for going back one page, and {Ctrl + Right-arrow} will go forward one page, which has always worked in Firefox.

That should be Alt + Left-arrow and Alt + Right-arrow to go Back or Forward.

I do not think it is a good idea. Without the little arrow you must take more clicks and finger move( specially when using touchpad on notebook,it is a pain leaving touchpad to get right click). It cost too much.All you get is is just a little toobar space,and what you lose is the Time

Actually, in addition to the right-click, holding the button down for 1 second with the left mouse button also works, at least in beta 7.
