From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.72 (Macintosh; I; PPC) BuildID: 2000041608 the Back button doesn't seem to be working for FTP. Under M16, the back button is enabled, yet hitting it forces the computer to spend a few seconds looking up the site. When it refreshes, though, the same directory we were just in reappears. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Click on bookmarks, sample ftp URLs, ftp:netscape. 2. Click on the directories...pub, netscape6... 3. Hit the back button. Actual Results: Note: m15 (Mac 8.6, 2000041704) doesn't even enable the 'back' button. Instead, it's just greyed out. I don't know if this is a refreshing problem, or the event handling. I'll let somebody else decide.
seeing this with m16 on win32 as well (2000042008) confirming and --> networking

Putting on [nsbeta2+] radar for beta2 fix.
Part of the problem described here has been fixed. Any click on bookmarks used to just replace the existing url in the content area instead of doing a legitimate load. This made urls loaded thro' bookmarks not get logged in to SH. That is why, the back button was grey. This was fixed 2 weeks ago. So, if you do exactly the steps described above, the back button won't be greyed out. But, I noticed another problem. After you have gone to a ftp site, ftp://<some site> and then click in a directory say pub, the loading of the pub directory again replaces the url in the content area, making ftp://<some site> vanish from the SH. If you click "Back" button now, you will land up in the page you were before going to ftp://<some site>. There are bugs already filed for the second problem. So, I'm going to close this one and cc firstname.lastname@example.org in the other bug, so he can track it.

VERIFIED with the 2000053108 builds. It'd be nice is someone referenced the other bug though.
