Back/Forward Dropdown Menus - an Extension for Firefox

Back/Forward Dropdown Menus is another little CSS hack created by request of BobFox. It removes the main Back and Forward buttons and styles their dropdown arrows to look like them. The net effect is that clicking the Back or Forward button shows a history list rather than navigating immediately.


This add-on is no longer being updated (by me)—there won't be an update compatible with Firefox 3 (or later versions).


It's not a good idea to use this extension with Back/Forward Dropdown Remover; combined, they annihilate all of the buttons' useful parts.

Known issue in version 0.1: the buttons' tooltips still include one page.

About this entry

An Extension for Firefox that turns the entire Back and Forward buttons into dropdown menus.

I published this entry on 3 August 2005 when I should've been asleep. This newest edition emerged on 30 January 2008. That means this is pretty old. Beware parachronisms.
