When you open a link into a new tab the back button is not enabled, and you don't have a easy way to go back to where you came from without recalling the whole process. I would like a generally unnoticed way to:

1)go to the referring page in the current tab
 -or-
2)switch to the referring tab
2b)open a new copy of referring tab if it was closed

Not sure how this would be implamented into the UI.

--Perhaps having the history drop down next to forward/back buttons have a entry for the referring page at the bottom of its list and active at all times--but keep the back button inactive when you are on the url the fresh tab was opened to.

Reproducible: Always
This matter is not an issue and I don't consider it worth the implementation.
