I like having the little drop down list on the Firefox Back/Forward button so that I can select a page in my history to go to instead of having to keep pressing the Back button.

The list disappeared in Firefox 4 Beta 7. How do I get it back?

You can also hold the mouse button if you have a 1 button mouse but taking it away is CRAZY. – user81117 May 13 '11 at 17:26

Right-click on the forward/back buttons to bring up the list, this was also possible in Firefox 3

...true, but not too different from having to keep pressing the Back button? Still, it is faster of course! – Arjan Dec 17 '10 at 12:57
How so? It's the same number of clicks as the way I'm assuming the asker used to do it (by clicking the little arrow beside forward/back to bring up the list) – Azz Dec 17 '10 at 13:00
You're right, it is the same number of clicks too, I didn't realize that! And: the area where one needs to click is much larger than that little arrow. (But I can't upvote twice!) – Arjan Dec 17 '10 at 14:52

If you prefer keeping the drop-down menu as it was in FF3, there is now an add-on here -

Click and hold on the back/forward button, and the menu will appear. It's an alternate way to pull it up, if you don't like the idea of right-clicking.
