I can't find the "back button".

Posted

I never have a back button, ever. I have not seen one since upgrading to 4.0. I'm talking about an arrow on screen to go backwards or forwards.

  • If the menu bar is hidden then press F10 or hold down the Alt key, that should make the "Menu Bar" appear
  • Go to "View > Toolbars" and check-mark "Menu Bar" with a click if you want to make that permanent

See What happened to the File, Edit, and View menus?)

  • Make sure that the "Navigation Toolbar" and the "Bookmarks Toolbar" are visible: "View > Toolbars"
  • If items are missing then open the Customize window via "View > Toolbars > Customize" or via "Firefox > Options > Toolbar Layout"
  • If a missing item is in the toolbar palette then drag it back from the Customize window on the toolbar
  • If you do not see that item then click the "Restore Default Set" button to restore the default toolbar set up
