Hi BOBSCHRO, there isn't any built-in way to restore the old "Show History" button in the address bar.

If you set browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus to false, then you can drop down the list using one of these methods:

  • Type the ^ character (starts a history search) or press spacebar
  • If the bar is empty, press the down arrow key
  • If there is a URL in the bar, delete it

If you really, really want a button, I created an add-on with a toolbar button, but it opens its own drop-down. You can find more info here:
