Takes you to the top of the page rather than 'back'. Also If you go so far as 
to order on the site [You don't need to submit your order!] the page where you 
enter your details does not work. Works in IE 5.0/Netscape 4.6...

Also:

javascript:window.external.AddFavorite
('http://www.onlyfinebeer.co.uk/','Onlyfinebeer')

does not work, is this IE specific?

The history.back bug is a dup of  bug 21373, and since that's well known I'm 
moving the second half of the bug report off to the Bookmarks component - I 
guess there are security issues here though?

Changing summary from "javascript:history.back()" to

"javascript:window.external.AddFavorite(...) does not work"

to indicate that this bug is not an unrecognized dup of bug 21373.



Summary: javascript:history.back() → javascript:window.external.AddFavorite(...) does not work

Reassigning 79 Bookmarks bugs to Ben.  I was told this was going to be done 
shortly about two months ago, but it clearly hasn't been.  I think that's long 
enough for all these bugs to remain assigned to nobody.

Feel free to filter all this spam into the trashcan by looking for this string 
in the message body: ducksgoquack

This is IE specific. No plans to implement.

If webpages want to add bookmarks, they can use a signed script to access
XPConnect, then get the bookmarks service and call 'AddBookmark' on it.
