If I open another URL from my homepage, the "go back one page" button is grayed out so I can't get back to my home page.
This problem only started recently. Opening another web page (URL) from my homepage always opens in the same tab and the "go back one page" button is gray and does not work. If I open a series of web pages in the same tab the green "back" button is green. Clicking on the "recent pages" down arrow will allow me to go back, but only to the page after the home page. In other words, after browsing, I can get back to the opening page (my home page) only by clicking on the house icon but not by using the "recent pages" function. Is there an option that changed after the last update?
The Macfee Site advisor add-on was causing the problem, thanks for your helpRead this answer in context 👍 1

This should not be happening. If you wish to go to your home page, you can press the home button.

I also have this problem, only just started, whenever you open a new window or tab, and then go to a new page, the back button will not work for the first address.

Do you see any tab history if you right click the Back or Forward button?
Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of the add-ons is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).
- Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.

I disabled Macfee Site Advisor add-on and that fixed my problem also. Thanks
I'm having the same exact problem, and I also have the McAfee SiteAdvisor. Is there a way to fix this without disabling it?
