Back and forward buttons on multi-button mice should activate the new "back" and "forward" functions (bug 74959).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Read at least two messages!
2. Click "back" button on mouse
Previously-read message should be selected
This functionality can be achieved by setting application-specific bindings in the mouse driver, but this shouldn't be necessary. In Firefox back and forward work out-of-the-box, for example.
After wading through the original bug 30431 and piles of widget code, I found the code in Firefox to hook the buttons up:

This is a port from the Firefox code mentioned in comment 1.
Back and Forward buttons work just fine on my mouse.
I don't have a multimedia keyboard, so I couldn't test "Stop", "Search", and "Bookmarks".
I don't think "Home" and "Reload" make much sense in Thunderbird.

great, thanks for the patch! Can you indent the case statements so they're 2 spaces in from the switch?
