Back History Stack

Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; rv:2.0b5pre) Gecko/20100830 Firefox/4.0b5pre

Currently in the above build, when cycling through the Add-On Manager panes Firefox will build an unnecessary history, and this in turn builds a rather hefty back history stack. 

What is the purpose of this tracking when the user has access to all panes in-front of them?

See my back history stack screenshot from just looking touring the panes.

This is pretty standard behavior for web applications, so that you can navigate around and go back to where you were.

Also chrome will be removed by bug 571970. So you will only have the in-content back and forward buttons to navigate back and forward through the panes.

Ok, that's much more gratifying.
