Firefox Mobile 17.0b1
Device: Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (Android 4.0.4)

Steps to reproduce:
1. Load any link - for e.g.
2. In the same tab load
3. Search for a video and open the video details page.
4. Go back to the possible video lists and then back to the youtube main page.
5. Try to go forward to the search again.
6. Go back to the first page in the tab history and then forward until the the forward button is greyed out - you have reached the last page in the tab history.

Expected results:
The user can use back and forward any time the action is valid. The buttons are greyed when the action is not possible.

Actual results:
When navigating back through the youtube pages the forward button remains grey until the user navigates back to a different page then youtube - in this case Once the user has reached a page other then youtube the forward button does not become grey any more even if there aren't any other pages in the tab history.

Please see the video capture:
Do you still see this on latest code?

This is still an issue on Nightly 22.0a1 2013-03-24 on the Samsung Galaxy Tab (Android 4.0.4). There are still instances where the Forward button remains grayed even if it should be hidden, where the user can tap the Forward button and nothing happens because there is no page to go to. Please see the videocapture:

I can't reproduce this. Maybe was fixed by bug 815715.
