Firefox used to have under the file pull down a close tab feature and my latest version does not have one.

When I'm on a web site and want to go back to the previous page the back arrow is grayed out and the only way that I can get back there is to exit Firefox and then get back by opening it again. Am I missing the way to get back to the previous page?

Some menu entries in the main menu bar are hidden if you use the mouse and only appear if you use the keyboard to open the menu (Bug 626825).
You can see the difference if you use Alt+F to open the File menu or other menus like the Edit menu (Alt+E) and Bookmarks menu (Alt+B) and compare that to what you see if you use the mouse to open the menu after you have made the menu bar visible by tapping Alt or by pressing F10.
