backwards button should work differently


(Core :: DOM: Navigation, defect, P3)

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:59.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/59.0

Steps to reproduce:

The backwards button should work differently IMO

If I click it 6 times, then it should go back 6 pages.

Actual results:

Right now it actually only registers a backwards click as a new click, when the page is loaded enough.
So you have to wait "ages" to click again, even though you know, that you want to rewind x pages.

If the user pressed to often he/she can go forward again after all, so this should only improve user experience, I think.
and yes, the alternative is to press and hold the button to see a list of the last pages,
but not everybody knows that and I still would like the button to register the amount of clicks correctly :)
