-start browser -edit|preferences -go to the themes preference -click on classic skin -click on the switch themes button -close browser -restart browser and there won't be any back/forward buttons Win32 m18 trunk build 2000-08-03-08-M18
Trunk only: This is bad. I see it too. Raising severity and nominating for nsbeta3. There is no way to get these buttons back (unless I delete this profile and start with a new one..prob). Also trying to switch back to the modern theme is not possible from the prefs UI. Is there a bug for this? cc:sairuh
Severity: normal → major
hm, a side-effect of bug 47081?
I don't see this problem (win98, same build - 80308 M18) or the one shrir mentions (about not being able to switch to the modern skin).
Nikhil please look into this.

I don't think that this is skin-specific, but rather a general skin-switching bug. After launching 2000080714-M18 Commercial in the classic skin, I opened up the themes-prefs panel and switched to modern. Instantaneously after switching, the forward/back buttons disappeared in the modern skin. After restarting Netscape, the buttons returned. Switching back to classic caused no problems, and the buttons did not disappear when I quit and restarted the app. Then when I switched to modern again, the back/forward buttons were gone. This is on Win 98.
I am seeing this exact same behavior (missing buttons from modern) on my Mac as well.
this appear's to be a theme-switching bug, as described above. Switching component to Skinability.

see this on all platforms using build 2000-08-10-08-M18 EXACT steps to reproduce: -create a profile with any name (i.e lijvehblkjdb) -start browser -Edit|Preferences -In the Appearance category click on themes -switch the themes to classic then press ok -after themes are switched press ok and... -File|Quit -Restart the browser using the same profile and the back and forward buttons will be missing -this also mixes the modern with classic skin in some instances (modern lay out but classic buttons) -preferences are totally useless as well and this is always reproducible Note: this works with any profile, new or old, as long as it switched themes to classic then quited out of the browser
