1.  I use a LOT to search for images, etc.  When I get a page of 
images in IE 6.x, putting the mouse curser over an image shows the associated 
URL in the bottom line of the browser.  Same for hovering over a link.  Not so 
for Firefox 1.0.  Can this feature be implemented?
2.  There seems to be no way to "page back" through the transactions on a web 
window and move to any arbitrary point in the browsing session for that 
window.  It looks like it happens, but it doesn't.  Regardless of where I 
happen to look like I am, if I do a single backstep (using left arrow key), I 
find that the pointer is actually pointing at the end-of-browsing page.  Ouch.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.  See above.

Actual Results:  
1. You never see the URLs.
2. You are always pointed to the last page in the list.

Expected Results:  
1.  Shown the url associated with the image, video, or link.
2.  Allowed an incremental (by group) regression through all of the web pages 
linked to until one reaches the desired point in that progression - back to 
the beginning, if desired.
