After latest upgrade

The retracing back or forwards drop down history lists are not there at all.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Launch Browser
2.  Visit more than one page, like : :
3.  Click the arrow on the Back Button and no longer get the drop down retracing steps menu.  Can not skip straight backwards from to
4.  Have to go back one page at a time, instead.

Actual Results:  
A small square box appears in lower left corner of both Back and Forward buttons and do nothing but flash the buttons as if highlighted.  The small square box does not show the retracing steps menu.  Have to go back/forward one page at time instead of being able to quickly go back more than one page at a time.

Expected Results:  
To be able to have access to the menus like I used to with previous versions.

In case the following is needed the Adds Ons currently installed are:
AdBlock Plus
Clipmarks   3.0.3
DOM Inspector
FoxClocks  2.3.14
User Agent Switcher  0.6.11
Version: unspecified → 2.0 Branch
Does running in Safe Mode "fix" this problem?
