What to do with back forward drop downs is interesting debate, so here is one possible solution:

whenever back or forward button is pressed a contextual pop-up appears containing back and forward history.

The form of the pop-up is to be discussed. My best guess is that it should contain visual previews and appear in unobtrusive way (possible solution is a transparent pop-up at the bottom of window, another is transparent vertical pop-up on the left side) and disappear after some time of inactivity - or after activity like clicking out of pop-up.

Reproducible: Always

Yes, and it was since Firefox 0.1, I guess. So, what is the connection between this behaviour and my bug?

This doesn't really make sense for a normal click, but does for a context click.  Additionally, we have a dropdown arrow that you can click to bring this up.  I think this should probably be marked as WONTFIX.
