The Back button is not enabled until the third page in the history of a new window, not the second as you would expect. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open a page that contains links in a new window from the File menu, context menu, or desktop shortcut, etc. 2. Click on a link in that new window. 3. Note the lack of a back button to return to the previous page :(. 4. Click on a link in this second page. 5. Note that we do now have a back button to return to the previous page. But we still cannot return to the page before that (ie. the first page in the history.) Note: you can get there by the Go menu (so the history is accurate, just not the Back button.) Actual Results: Page history starting with a new window: 1st page --> No Back button as expected (nothing to go to.) 2nd page --> No Back button (BROKEN!, Should be able to get to the first.) 3rd page --> Back button is now enabled. Expected Results: Page history starting with a new window: 1st page --> No Back button as expected (nothing to go to.) 2nd page --> Back button is now enabled.
The very first window created upon starting the brower is not affected (it works correctly.)

Okay I found the problem: The condition appears when I install the extension "Web Developer 0.8" and disappears when I uninstall it. Sorry for not removing my installed extensions to remove them from the picture.
