Why won't the back button give a list of all locations I've been as before? Now I have to tediously go back one page at a time :(

Ever since I downloaded Firefox 4 on April 30, 2011, the back button has failed to give the list it used to give when you hovered over it, of all the places you had been … (read more)

Ever since I downloaded Firefox 4 on April 30, 2011, the back button has failed to give the list it used to give when you hovered over it, of all the places you had been in getting to where you are on that tab. That gave one the option of going directly back to the beginning of one's cyber-travels on that tab, or choose any other port-of-call on the way. Now I have to tediously get back to my starting point, or an earlier point, one click after another. Hope that's enough information to give you the picture.

Since upgrading to 4.0.1 I have lost Norton toolbar with identity safe, I have spoken with Norton and they have state that I need to return an earlier version as they have no fix. However this problem is on my laptop XP Pro only. My desktop has same version and every thing runs OK. I have since checked troubleshooting info and noticed that norton extensions are listed on both computers complete with ID but only desktop is recorded as enabled. Can this problem be resolved on my laptop to regain norton ( which works on other PC) or do I have no choice in reloading to an earlier version of firefox and if so what is the easest wy to do this without no loss to bookmarks etc.

I'm used to having my 'Stop Loading', 'Home', 'Reload' buttons to the left of the address bar... Is there any way in FF 4 to add those buttons back to the bar? I get the concept of chasing the 'awesome bar' concept, but some of us prefer to have more direct and immediate control of these functions, rather than having someone else spoon-feed over simplified controls to us.

As I say, the online help files refer to an "Organize Bookmarks" option, which no longer exists, as far as I can see. I know a lot of "research" went into the Firefox upgrade, and I certainly wouldn't wish to seem unappreciative, but...


Thanks for any help anyone can give.

My opened windows were saved before so I didn't have to open all of them every time I use the computer, but they are always gone now when I start every day, so I have to go to the History and start looking for whatever I was working on the previous day. Since I normally have more than one window opened , it is really a pain. Why was the save and quit taken out of Firefox 4? It is really needed!
