In the previous versions of Firefox, there was a small arrow button attached to the back/forward buttons. Clicking this arrow showed a menu of the last 10 sites you visited and allowed you to jump back or forward, without having to press the back button 5 times, for example, to get to the fifth last site you visited. Where did the little arrow go? Can I turn it back on somehow?

I installed Firefox4 on my Windows computer and some of my add-ons did not work. I also found some things slower (this is an old computer).

I would like to try Firefox5 on my Mac, but do not want to overwrite 3.6 until I am satisfied it is working satisfactorally.

In previous versions of FF and in other browsers, I can use the tab key to navigate through all the links on a webpage - I can't seem to do this with FF5, the tab key will only highlight the address bar, search bar, and any form fields within a webpage.

Using the tab key to navigate through links on a page is an accessibility feature, and I often use it to show hidden skip links at the top of a webpage for users who prefer to use the keyboard over a mouse and for assistive technologies.

Is this something that can be turned back on in preferences? Or is there a reason why it was removed from this version?

At the top, though, it says that the theme is not available for my platform. It has happened with some other themes as well, but I didn't check what versions they work with. I don't know what this means or what to do about it. The theme is at this link: https://addons.mozilla.org/z/en-US/firefox/addon/bloomind-ft-deepdark-2/

My data source is a daily table on a Web page. In FF 3.16 I click in the table and select File>Save Frame As.... In the Save As dialog box, I key a file name ending in ".txt". The data is saved in a tab-separated text file that I open in Excel.

In FF 5.0.1 File>Save Page As… results in Excel opening a blank sheet.
