From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:0.9+) Gecko/20010517 BuildID: 2001051704 I am using Mozilla with the new Modern theme (the very sexy looking one!) that runs by default on the latest nightlies. The back and forward buttons only provide history if the small downwards-facing arrow beneath them is clicked. This is bad as the small arrow is too small a target for the mouse, and so requires greater effort to find and click it. It would be better if the buttons provided history after the mouse has been held clicked on them for a while, as well as instantly via the small arrow. This is how it works in Netscape 4. Obviously, quick click and release actions should trigger the standard back/forward by one action that it does now. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Run Mozilla, try clicking on the back/forward buttons having first of all browsed through a few pages.
I agree with the reporter that it should display a history when the button is held down. Also, if enough people want, it could be a default action across all themes, to maintain a sense of consistency. Of course, the small arrow in Modern (and whatever other theme wants to use a different system) would remain.
Sounds like bug 65726. Blah.
