I'm using Firefox 3.6 on Ubuntu and I believe the back button's default was small (I.e., the same size as the forward button).

I know there are many fixes to make it small, however, I would like to make it big like the usual Firefox.


Big vs. Small Back Button

I would like to have the first image.

EDIT: the "Use Small Icons" box under Toolbar > Customize is toggled off. Never played with it before. The Back button was never large.

Starting with Firefox 3, different UIs are used on different operating systems. The Linux version uses a traditional GTK2 toolbar where all buttons are of the same size and separate from each other.

Do the reverse of this (i.e. uncheck the box):

If you're not a fan of Firefox 3's large back button, you don't have to wrangle with CSS or themes to adjust its size. Simply right-click on Firefox's toolbar, and choose Customize. In the dialog box, select "Use small icons"—and voila! Your back button will be the same size as reload.

sorry I'll edit the question -- this is unchecked. I've never played with any of the toolbar settings before. – kalaracey Jun 4 '11 at 21:47
