RFE for an "up" button that chops off the last part of the URL. It would probably be off by default. The main reason I'm posting this as a browser RFE instead of asking skin developers to do it (aside from the fact that i'm a bugzilla-vote whore) is that there should be standard code inside mozilla that the skins can call. There's no point in each skin developer creating the functionality separately, especially since they would probably each do if differently. Potential problems: - How would it handle a site where /foo/ redirects to /foo/index.html?

A "top" button that acts like an href to / would be nice as well.
cool idea, but not really a networking thing -> don would know...
The 'up' and 'top' buttons could be combined into one. Cf. the 'back' button. You click once to go up one level, or there is a drop-down box which can take you all the way to the top. Nifty way to do directory browsing too. Gosh, it would be just like... uh... windows explorer.
