Bug 20451 is not a dup of this bug, but of bug 19337. I have noticed something similar with the back and forward arrow, both with file:// and ftp:// urls. Expected behaviour: Directories are treated like webpages. They show up in your history and you can navigate between them using back and forward arrows after initial browsing Actual behaviour: They get ignored or overwritten. To reproduce: - Launch mozilla. - Go to some directory (file:/// for example) - Go down a directory level by clicking on the directory's name ! Try to press the back arrow to go up a level :-) - Enter your favorite website (or a completely different directory) in the location bar - Now go to file:/// again by typing it in the location bar - Go down a directory level again ! Press the navigate back button and notice you go to your favorite website (expected: back up a level) - Press the navigate forward button, you will be in the previous directory - Navigate towards a picture file and view it ! Navigate back, you will be at your favorite website (Expected: the directory containing the picture) ! Navigate forward, and you'll see the picture again (Expected: the directory containing the picture) Note: when doing the last few steps with text files (.txt, .java) instead of pictures, the last step will take you to the directory containing the text file (but you can't take one more step forward to view the text file again). To summarize: browsing directories, be it local or on an ftp site, you get some pretty weird behaviour with the back and forward buttons. The underlying problem seems to me that browsing through directories by clicking on them doesn't add them to your browsing history, unless you click a text file, apparantly. I see this behaviour with both Win95 moz-build 2000040908 and Linux moz-build 2000040909.
Bill, is there a bug here?

More than one, probably. I'm going to send it to Radha, though. Seems like more of a session history kind of thing.
