In bug 1617240 we added a reload button to reload the remote site's page.

We should add forward and back buttons to perform those operations.

@daisuke: Could you advise on the wiring to create these controls? Specifically, how/where to read the back and forward stack?

Hi David, thank you very much for filing this!

I think we can do as same as reload().
But, at first, it seems that we don't have back/forward function in the actor, need to implement those functions.
For example, when reloading the page, the actor calls reload() of nsiWebNavigation.
As same as above, it seems we can implement the actor using nsiWebNavigation's functions.
Of course, we need to implement/define the functions in the front side and the spec as well.

After that, I think we can use the functions from about:debugging.
