Under Customize Toolbar I thought it would be a worthwhile idea to add
additional context sensitive icons for LINK REL related navigation.

Mozilla has a toolbar that hids / shows based on the appearance of <link> items
in the head of a page, bt I don't like that behavior (either having a toolbar
that is always open but useless 95% of the time, or one that is hidden 95% of
the time, but can be forced open for only one oddball rel.)

Instead, I would think that a select set of icons to aid in the navigation of
datasets (like the photosets in the link, or found bugzilla bugs and bug
listings) could be added and placed on the toolbar by those individuals who
might have a use for them.

My initial set that i'd see useful would be:

First
Last
Previous
Next

Other values to consider, but that may be better covered in some type of context
menu instead of individual buttons:
Up
Parent
Start
Child

I didn't see anyhting filed on either a toolbar or buttons aside from bug 204238
which I'm not quite sure is trying to for for link rel funtionality or an up
directory functionality.

I think this is a good idea; it's just a matter of someone getting around to
implementing it, I guess

Would like to see support for LINK related navigation via a Mozilla-style site
navigation bar; disagree with the comment on the toolbar behavior of being open
and useful/less sometimes; that is really dependent on the website design and 
not that of the browser.

This is one feature that Conkeror (http://conkeror.org) has that I really enjoy. Unfortunately since FF doesn't support it, not many sites have added this metadata, but it really improves usability.

See the Link Widgets extension for an implementation: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/2933 I would love to see this rolled into FF core.
This is a Camino bug, not a Firefox bug. You should file a bug against Firefox if you've found no other duplicates in a search.
This bug has been buried in the graveyard and has not been updated in over 5 years. It is probably safe to assume that it will never be fixed, so resolving as WONTFIX.
