    Default "Back" button Firefox 38

    Hello

    "Back" button in Firefox 38.0.5-2.1 from mozilla repo doesn't work

    When I change vendor to official OpenSuse repo it installs 38.0.1-30.1 Firefox, where "back" button works.

    What's going on? What happened to back button (go back one page).

    greetings

    It's always worth testing a new .mozilla
    Rename your current one, the start FF
    A new .mozilla will be created, you can delete this later rename your old one back.

    Just tested new installation with new .mozilla folder.
    The same - if it is installed from mozilla repo the 'back' button doesn't work - it's greyed all times.

    This is definitely an issue with the 38.0.5 build. I updated an hour ago to it and the back button remains gray, as does the right-click popup back option.

    Reverting to the 38.0.1 build brought it back. Better the ability to back up than the "latest and buggy greatest". ;-)

    Well, I'm using Mozilla Fireofox 38.0.5, and the 'Go backwards one page' button is working as always.

    Try launching Firefox using
    Code:
    firefox --safe-mode
    Does it behave the same way?

    I am having the same issue. Running in safe mode does not change anything. I also deleted my .mozilla directory and tried again and experienced the same problem. There is an issue with that build.

    Of course you do actually have to go forward before you can go back (just in case)

    Same problem here. And they just pushed .05 to TW, so it will get the attention now as the TW users lose their back/forward buttons.
